Opioid All that said, a modified, more plausible, version of the economic determinants hypothesis would be that, when access to an addictive substance is rapidly rising (as opioids, but not tobacco, was during the financial crisis), those users of that substance who live in economically difficult circumstances are more likely to progress from use to addiction. There can be multiple mechanisms behind this: fewer competing rewards in the environments of lower-income people; greater subjective relief from relatively higher life stress upon drug administration; more temptation for economic reasons to deal pills; and selection into social class effects.
