It’s difficult for a non-addicted person to rationalize the addicted mind, and the societal stigmatism around addiction doesn’t make that any easier. How can they keep making these decisions if they know they’re wrong, and why won’t they make choices that lead to recovery?
The truth is, an addict isn’t in complete control. Like cancer or diabetes, addiction is a disease. In spite of a sound moral compass, a lot is going on in an addict’s brain that drives them to behave badly or make poor choices.
Returning to the Cover2 Resources podcast to help explain the science behind the addicted mind, is Dr. Nicole Labor.
Dr. Labor is not only a successful addiction specialist but a former addict herself. She uses this experience to bring a unique perspective to her work and the conversation surrounding addiction. Dr. Labor has spoken at many events, breaking down the biology of addiction in ways a layperson can easily understand.
To empower more families, Dr. Labor’s new book, The Addictoholic Deconstructed: An Irreverent Quick and Dirty Education by a Doctor who Says F*ck, a Lot, further explores the science of addiction through her personal experience.
Breaking down the ideas she shares in her book, Nichole takes us through her journey with addiction, providing a personal, and technical perspective, into the science of the addicted mind.
Join us for today’s podcast, with returning guest Dr. Nichole Labor, where we deconstruct the science of addiction.
