Aprašymas

From a renowned research psychologist and recovered drug addict, this is the authoritative and accessible guide to drug addiction we've been waiting for: clearly explained neuroscience and vivid personal stories combine to reveal how addiction happens and what can be done about it.

Addiction is epidemic and catastrophic. With more than 1 in every 5 people over the age of 14 addicted, drug abuse has been called the most formidable health problem worldwide. If we are not victims ourselves, we all know someone struggling with the merciless compulsion to alter their experience by changing how their brain functions.
Drawing on years of research--as well as personal experience as a recovered addict--professor Judith Grisel has reached a fundamental conclusion: for the addict, there will never be enough drugs. The brain's capacity to learn and adapt is seemingly infinite, allowing it to counteract any regular disruption, including those caused by drugs. What begins as a normal state punctuated by periods of being high transforms over time into a state of desperate craving that is only temporarily subdued by a fix, explaining why addicts are unable to live either with or without their drug. One by one, Grisel shows how different drugs act on the brain, the kind of experiential effects they generate, and the specific reasons why each is so hard to kick.
Grisel's insights lead to a better understanding of the brain's critical contributions to addictive behavior, and will help inform a more rational, coherent, and compassionate response to the epidemic in our homes and communities.
