We thank Dr Joan Trujols for his comments on our review. We did indeed briefly raise, but not discuss in detail, one of the key claims made for the socially desirable impacts of the brain disease model of addiction (BDMA), that public acceptance of the BDMA will reduce stigmatisation of addicted persons. Space limitations did not permit us to do so.
