Please listen to the program by Dr. Stanton Peele at https://fccdl.in/CEsTScj7B0
Since 1975, when Stanton Peele and Archie Brodsky published Love and Addiction, he has embodied a non-disease approach to addiction. This approach sees drugs at one with other destructive entanglements; “recovery” as an incremental, real-world-functioning process; traditional disease treatments (including trauma-based ones) as attacking the optimism and agency that enable people to actually improve their lives. He is currently preparing his memoir, A Life on the Scientific Edge: My Quest To Change How We See Addiction. He has authored or co-authored many books, including his most recent “Outgrowing Addiction”, with Zach Rhoads.
