Addiction and the Brain – drug or alcohol abuse is a disease.

Tim Brunson, PhD, talks about how the brain works regarding addictions (alcohol, drug addiction). Why does your brain respond to repeated behavior? How can you use suggestion and imagination to create an alternate reward instead of alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs? Listen to this video on addictions and find answers.

I agree with Dr. Brunson on hypnotherapy and should be incorporate into other forms of treatment along with some kind of reward system. Please give us you opinion on this, is addiction a disease or not? And if so do you agree with the Doctor and myself with these strategies and treatment for the addict.

I find this interesting at the same time if you or your love one is long term, it’s not that it can’t be done, just more treatment an time along with love will be needed for the addict to break the cycle of addiction.


We are here to share our experience with drug addiction how it affects both the addict and their families along with their friends. Bringing awareness about the war on drugs an how it has failed in many ways. You are welcome to comment even if you might disagree with the post, we here are a free speech zone. We will post it as long it's constructive towards solutions rather then being to harsh and judgmental causing it to be part of the problem.

    Addiction is a disease, proven fact. The substance works in the pleasure centre of the brain. It has been medically proven. I think the only real treatment for addiction at this time is abstinence. The addict needs to be taught skills on how to manage stress, and cravings. They have to have a Recovery plan in place. Issues need to be addressed by their therapists. There are medication out there that relieve the cravings for certain types of substances as well.


    • I agree that most of the battle is after the physical detox, meaning the real battle is for a lifetime of stress management along with positive influence for a purpose in their lives. Thanks for your input I have learn not only from my own experiences, but also from others as yourself 🙂
