Let’s Get Unstuck on debate about addiction.

This is great article about how arguing about addiction being either a choice or a disease has got us running in circles and not coming up with a solution… I could not agree with this more.

One thought on “Let’s Get Unstuck on debate about addiction.

  1. This is a great article. It is a ridiculous debate. I personally believe addiction is both a disease and a choice (your brain is more likely to become physiologically dependent upon a drug, due to genetic or environmental factors…and you choose whether or not to deal with that reality in a healthy way). Like most things in life, the answer is not either/or. Thanks for posting this.
