“Treating addiction as a disease makes society feel compassionate, but this comes at the cost
of making substance users feel powerless to change.

Steven P. Slate
Author & Researcher

 

Steven Slate is a Research Fellow of Baldwin Research Institute (BRI) and co-author of The Freedom Model for Addictions. His critical essays on the brain disease model of addiction have also appeared in college textbooks on addiction and abnormal psychology from Greenhaven Press and McGraw Hill.

As a former heroin user, Steven experienced the addiction treatment system from the inside, spending 5 years in inpatient and outpatient rehabs, methadone clinics, 12 step meetings, and psychiatric treatments aimed at the “underlying causes of addiction.” Each of these treatments left him worse off, until with the help of one of BRI’s earlier educational programs, he rejected the helpless addict role, and began to see himself as capable of choosing differently. He’s devoted his life to showing others that they too are in control of themselves, and capable of self-initiated change of their substance use habits, without a lifetime of treatment and support group meetings.
