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 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

All rights reserved. All images/videos by Alila Medical Media are for information purposes ONLY and are NOT intended to replace professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Addiction is a neurological disorder that affects the reward system in the brain. In a healthy person, the reward system reinforces important behaviors that are essential for survival such as eating, drinking, sex, and social interaction. For example, the reward system ensures that you reach for food when you are hungry, because you know that after eating you will feel good. In other words, it makes the activity of eating pleasurable and memorable, so you would want to do it again and again whenever you feel hungry. Drugs of abuse hijack this system, turning the person’s natural needs into drug needs. The brain consists of billions of neurons, or nerve cells, which communicate via chemical messages, or neurotransmitters. When a neuron is sufficiently stimulated, an electrical impulse called an action potential is generated and travels down the axon to the nerve terminal. Here, it triggers the release of a neurotransmitter into the synaptic cleft - a space between neurons. The neurotransmitter then binds to a receptor on a neighboring neuron, generating a signal in it, thereby transmitting the information to that neuron. The major reward pathways involve transmission of the neurotransmitter dopamine from the ventral tegmental area – the VTA - of the midbrain to the limbic system and the frontal cortex. Engaging in enjoyable activities generates action potentials in dopamine-producing neurons of the VTA. This causes dopamine release from the neurons into the synaptic space. Dopamine then binds to and stimulates dopamine-receptor on the receiving neuron. This stimulation by dopamine is believed to produce the pleasurable feelings or rewarding effect. Dopamine molecules are then removed from the synaptic space and transported back in to the transmitting neuron by a special protein called dopamine-transporter. Most drugs of abuse increase the level of dopamine in the reward pathway. Some drugs such as alcohol, heroin, and nicotine indirectly excite the dopamine-producing neurons in the VTA so that they generate more action potentials. Cocaine acts at the nerve terminal. It binds to dopamine-transporter and blocks the re-uptake of dopamine. Methamphetamine – a psychostimulant – acts similarly to cocaine in blocking dopamine removal. In addition, it can enter the neuron, into the dopamine-containing vesicles where it triggers dopamine release even in the absence of action potentials. Different drugs act different way but the common outcome is that dopamine builds-up in the synapse to a much greater amount than normal. This causes a continuous stimulation, maybe over-stimulation of receiving neurons and is responsible for prolonged and intense euphoria experienced by drug users. Repeated exposure to dopamine surges caused by drugs eventually de-sensitizes the reward system. The system is no longer responsive to everyday stimuli; the only thing that is rewarding is the drug. That is how drugs change the person’s life priority. After some time, even the drug loses its ability to reward and higher doses are required to achieve the rewarding effect. This ultimately leads to drug overdose.

When we last featured Borrowed Identity in September on Home Taping Is Killing Music imprint, he was sampling laid back strings from a French rap song along with soulful female vocals to create a house soother.Well...this time, things have evolved ever so slightly...This track is an absolute heater!!Taken from the EP, XXX, Addictive sees the German producer & DJ move to acclaimed Parisian label, Circus Company France, home to releases from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, DJ Koze & Deetron...which gives you a hint of what to expect from his début release on the label. Not wanting to ruin your first listen, let's just say it combines some wonderful use of synth stab echoing, panning and filtering...set to a relentless 4x4 beat. Feel thaaa heeaaaaat!!

We have typically defined addiction as needing a substance to function normally, but this ignores crucial psychological qualities of addiction. A new and better definition has arrived, says Maia Szalavitz. Szalavitz's latest book is "Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction" (http://goo.gl/kozQdR). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/maia-szalavitz-on-addiction-as-a-learning-disorder Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - Addiction is compulsive behavior despite negative consequences. And it's really important to start by defining addiction because for a long time we really defined it very poorly. We used to think that addiction was needing a substance to function. And what that resulted in was that cocaine was not addictive because cocaine does not produce physical withdraw that is noticeable. You may be cranky and irritable and crave cocaine, but you won't be puking and shaking and have the classic symptoms that you would see with alcohol or heroin withdrawal. So cocaine wasn't addictive. Then crack came and we realized that defining addiction in that way not only harms people by telling them that cocaine is not addictive, it also harmed pain patients because people who take opioids daily for pain will develop physical dependence but they are not addicted unless they have compulsive behavior despite negative consequences. I see addiction as a learning disorder and the reason that I see it that way is because the biology of addiction unfolds in a developmental context over time and that means that a huge amount of variables come into it, not only genes and early environment, but also culture, your family, the way you interpret your own experience. So it becomes very complicated pretty quickly. Addiction is a learning disorder because it can't occur without learning. You have to learn to associate the drug with some kind of relief or pleasure. And you need to do that repeatedly over time before you can become addicted. This is why a baby can't be addicted because a baby who is born with physical dependence on something like heroine doesn't know whether it needs a diaper change or just wants mommy or wants heroin. And it certainly can't you go out and score despite negative consequences. So that's another reason what that it's really important to distinguish between physical dependence and addiction. So the learning is involved where you learn that this works to fix a problem and you basically then fall in love with the substance. Read Full Transcript Here: http://goo.gl/Z516mm.

Quitting drugs is hard because addiction is a brain disease. Your brain is like a control tower that sends out signals to direct your actions and choices. Addiction changes the signals in your brain and makes it hard to feel OK without the drug.

"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.
