The Addiction Solution Podcast

 
In today’s podcast, Episode 41, our team discusses one of the many crucial flaws in calling addiction disease. The addiction disease narrative goes like this: we must call addiction a disease to reduce the stigma associated with it so people won’t be afraid to seek treatment. But does the disease theory actually reduce stigma or make worse? Freedom Model authors, Mark Scheeren, Steven Slate and Michelle Dunbar talk about how calling addiction a brain disease is not only false, it heavily stigmatizes substance users thereby making it more difficult for them to find a lasting solution to their substance use problems. We cover this topic, as well as a few others in Episode 41 of The Addiction Solution Podcast. Take a listen!!
