10 Most Important Things Known About Addiction (Pt. 2)


By
Chris Newcomb, M.Div.

Yesterday, we opened the topic of the 10 most important things we know about addiction as presented by New Zealand professor of Psychiatry and Addiction Doug Sellman.  As I mentioned in yesterday's article, for many people, addiction is an enigma because it seems, at face value, to be a set of very stupid behaviors committed by very stupid people. What we're learning is that nothing could be further from the truth!  While people do make unwise choices because of their addiction, it is not because they are inherently stupid.  In reality, it is because they are addicted which renders them unable to see potential consequences before they happen.  

At The Coleman Institute, part of our mission is to help people better understand addiction.  In that spirit, today's blog points to part 2 of said article by Professor Sellman.  Please feel free to pass it on to anyone who might benefit from it!

If you or someone you love is in need of detox off of alcohol, opiates, benzos, Methadone, or Suboxone, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Pius or Amy Stewart at 1.877.773.3869. We are here to help you get clean and stay clean!
