Default NAABT Podcast- Dr. Alan Leshner

"Addiction is a brain disease and it matters" by Alan Leshner.

Below is a link to an audio podcast we had recorded of a paper written by Dr. Alan Leshner former director of NIDA. Although the author uses some stigmatizing terms (addict, user, abuser), the overall paper is very relevant and explains why addiction is considered a brain disorder. It is worth listening to, but it is large file (25MB) if you have dial up, download is not recommended. We are thinking of making more on different topics to make learning about addiction a little easier or more convenient, what do you think?

enjoy,

I like it much better than reading. Now that I'm tuned into the word "addict" I notice it every time I hear it, and really see the negative effect it has.

Figure out a way to get your podcasts on iTunes and you would be surprised at the amount of people that it will reach.

For the people that don't use iTunes (which is a free program for both Mac and PC) you should be able to use this in any other podcast player just enter the URL in

Would it make sense to make it a button on the smartphone Survivor's app?
