In this episode, Dr. Gala helps you understand how addiction really works and what it’s trying to accomplish. If you are a recovery stakeholder, you’ll be challenged to think differently as we dig deeper into ways that we can outsmart addiction. It is helpful to see addiction … not really as an enemy but rather … as a friend. And, it has served the addict well but its usefulness has come to an end.
