• Is Cannabis Addictive?

    What is addiction? The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) utilized more than 70 experts over four years to answer this question, and a public policy statement published in 2011 provided the consensus definition: “Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional re...

  • "Addiction Rewires Your Brain Like Falling in Love Does"

    "We've tended to see addiction as either a sin or a disease. But there's no other disease for which 80 percent of the treatment is prayer, confession, and meeting," regrets Time reporter Maia Szalavitz. "Addiction basically rewires your brain in the same way love or parenting does." In her new book, Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction, Szalavitz challenges the conventional wisdom that addicts are either diseased patients or dangerous criminals. Defining addiction as using a substance "compulsively despite negative consequences" such as serious damage to your work or personal life, she stresses that addiction is learned behavior, not abject powerlessness before a particular drug or activity. The addict's brain is not "broken" or permanently altered through dr...

Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response.” Prohibitionists condemn cannabis as addictive, but does consuming the plant regularly lead to a chronic disease of the brain reward system that physically alters dopaminergic pathways and motivates a pathological pursuit of substance reward? Moreover, is the disease primary, and do cannabis addicts experience punishing cravings that demand relief? These symptoms can emerge in a small number of cannabis consumers, but it can also happen playing Candy Crush. This is why a deeper grasp of addiction and dependence is necessary to understand the widely different definitions of addiction. To put it another way, Time magazine encapsulated the problem in 2010 with the following headline: “Is Marijuana Addictive? It Depends How You Define Addiction.” To learn more visit us at www.prohbtd.com. Music provided by Format Entertainment www.formatent.com

Using a developmental approach, the book presents evidence on the factors that influence the development of harmful substance use and gambling.the determinants of harm operate at three levels: molecular, individual, and social. This book brings to light the complex interplay between them and presents the scientific, social, economic, political, and psychological influences of harmful substance use and gambling. These individual determinants are then synthesised into an integrative heuristic model to encourage new ways of thinking. The findings from this analysis are used to elaborate key general implications for health and broadersocial policy, clinical practice, and future research.what Determines Harm from Addictive Substances and Behaviours? is based on research from Alice Rap, a multidisciplinary European study of addictive substances and behaviours in contemporary society. This is an essential resource for public health professionals, stakeholders influencing policy for addictive substances and behaviours, students, and academics looking to better understand the factors influencing substance use and gambling and the implications this research has foraddiction prevention policy.

"We've tended to see addiction as either a sin or a disease. But there's no other disease for which 80 percent of the treatment is prayer, confession, and meeting," regrets Time reporter Maia Szalavitz. "Addiction basically rewires your brain in the same way love or parenting does." In her new book, Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction, Szalavitz challenges the conventional wisdom that addicts are either diseased patients or dangerous criminals. Defining addiction as using a substance "compulsively despite negative consequences" such as serious damage to your work or personal life, she stresses that addiction is learned behavior, not abject powerlessness before a particular drug or activity. The addict's brain is not "broken" or permanently altered through drug use, even if her behavior becomes increasingly problematic. "What actually goes wrong in addiction is that you fall in love with a drug instead of a person," she says. "People never shoot up in front of the police. People plan very carefully to ensure they have a supply. That doesn't look like they are not making choices. It is very similar to the way people act when they are having an affair: they sneak around, they tell lies, they do things that they wouldn't otherwise do in order to make sure they can be with that person." Szalavitz, whose 2006 book Help at Any Cost unmasked abuse and fraud at "troubled teen" programs, says that the only rationale for why some drugs (such as tobacco) are legal and others (such as marijuana or cocaine) are not has to do with past racial and demographic hysterias and that the criminalization of substance abuse is doomed to failure. "If addiction is compulsory behavior despite negative consequences," she says, "negative consequences ain't going to fix it." Interview by Nick Gillespie. Camera by Todd Krainin and Joshua Swain; edited by Swain. About 6 minutes long.
