    A Pill for Everything - Including Your Addiction

We as a society believe there is a pill for whatever ails you - including being addicted to pills. Dr Inaba explores this trend, its impacts and the conflicts with more traditional approaches (12-step, peer counseling) in recovery treatment. Distributed by Tubemogul.

    Why Addicts seek out drugs even though they know they know it is no good for them. These GO and STOP controls are in the "old" brain - where survival and automatic body functions, emotions and habits reside. Psychoactive drugs activate the GO switch creating the desire to repeat the behavior. "An addict's MORE is a lot more." Perhaps even 1000 times more. Once the GO switch is on, it stays on; there is no feedback to stop.
