Maia Szalavitz, reporter and author, joins us to talk about her new book “Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction”. In addition to arguing that “drug laws are historical accidents”, Szalavitz takes the position that more people than ever before see themselves as addicted to, or recovering from, addiction, whether it be alcohol or drugs, prescription meds, sex, gambling, porn, or the internet. But despite the unprecedented attention, our understanding of addiction is trapped in unfounded 20th century ideas, addiction as a crime or as brain disease, and in equally outdated treatment. Join us for our exclusive interview with Maia as she works to break the mold and bring society’s understanding of addiction up to date.
