The Addiction Solution Podcast

 

In this episode of The Addiction Solution Podcast, Mark and Steven discuss the playground effect and how it can hinder an individual from making a lasting change in substance use habits. Many parents, loved ones and even substance users themselves tend to look at every substance use event, no matter how small or insignificant, as a major disaster. They learn this thinking in the treatment and addiction recovery subculture. They learn to view one drink the same as ten drinks, or one puff of a joint the same as using several bags of heroin. This is one of the most harmful addiction myths that is contributing to the current overdose crisis we have now. In order for anything to change, this thinking must change.
