Desire, Craving and Addiction

Desire is a natural part of life, but what happens when desire becomes an insatiable craving? Whether it is drugs, alcohol, too much food or even sex, there’s a line that can be crossed into addiction. This is a stressful time of year for those dealing with addiction and their loved ones. Today’s show looks at new treatment options and a neuroscientist discusses his own recovery and why he refutes the disease model of treatment.
