Why Can't They Stop

Why Can't They Stop

Our brains are amazing and complex. We'll have a conversation about how substance use can be relatively harmless for some yet for others, can lead to misuse or the disease of addiction.

Kevin McCauley MD will talk about addiction as a disease, rather than the other perceived "choice." "There are very good brain chemistry reasons for the things that addicts go through and do."

Dr. McCauley created the film Pleasure Unwoven and Memo to Self.
