This course takes a fresh look at the ways biological and environmental factors contribute to addictions and compulsive behaviors.
Research shows that any addiction results from a combination of inherited, learned, and practiced behaviors which can be treated and prevented. Alcohol, tobacco, prescription medications; illegal drugs including cocaine, heroin, and marijuana; and behaviors such as eating disorders, compulsive sexual activity, and compulsive gambling are also addressed. This video presents a fascinating look at the quarrel between old brain cravings and new brain reasoning and how these conflicts play out down to the cellular level. The unique role of spiritual awakening and service to others in recovery are also touched upon.
The information is presented with creative animation, live action, and easy to understand graphics.
