I don't know if it's that important to avoid buzzwords. The challenge is to keep it relevant and constructive. If addiction is a relevant issue in people's lives, it shouldn't matter if it's popular to 'buzz' about it or not, should it? I think the big problem with 'buzz' and sensationalism is that the only point is to obfuscate everything instead of addressing it constructively. People are uncomfortable with directly confronting issues so they hide behind buzz, I think.
