Addiction is a Disease
At our 2007 Meth Summit here in Bend, our keynote speaker was Dr. Kevin McCauley. Dr. McCauley is a treatment professional who is dedicating his life to helping addicts and their families, and he makes a compelling argument for Addiction as Disease. You may wish to visit Dr. McCauley's website at the Institute for Addiction Study, www.addictiondoctor.com. There you can order his books, CD's and DVD's about addiction.
You can also hear a very informative radio show interview with Dr. McCauley that was conducted by Afflicted and Affected: Broadcasting to Build Recovery, on March 29, 2010. To hear this 30-minute broadcast, click here.
