Addiction Is Not a Brain Disease, and That's Good News - Huffington Post | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
We don't have to ignore the biology of addiction to appreciate its psychology and to approach those who suffer humanistically rather than moralistically.

45 common myths, lies and misconceptions that inform drug policy

45 common myths, lies and misconceptions that inform drug policy | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Drug law and policy has its roots in fear, ignorance, racism and vested interest. Sadly, this has changed little over the years. Drug law and policy continues to be shaped more by punitive populism and moral crusades rather than scientific evidence, reason and rationality.

I did this for a lecture and thought it might be useful to share - although punchy and accessible in style, each point is carefully considered and can be academically supported.

Penrith Farms's curator insight, March 17, 2015 2:46 PM

A very very long article and well written.  The author brings up some very good points about substance abuse treatment and that is it takes few qualifications to call oneself an Addiction Counselor.  Hardly any doctors specialize in the area and addiction treatment hardly has any scientific evidence.  That is probably going to change quite a bit since now with the Affordable Care Act insurance has to cover alcohol and substance abuse treatment.

Video Game Addiction: Does It Occur? If So, Why?

Video Game Addiction: Does It Occur? If So, Why? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
The analogy of “videogame addiction” to gambling addiction is misleading.

Many if not most researchers who support the concept of video game addiction draw an analogy between video game playing and gambling. In fact, much of the research purporting to assess the prevalence of video game addiction--including the much-touted recent study conducted in Singapore [2]--has employed the same questionnaire that is used to assess the prevalence of gambling addiction, changing only the word "gambling" to "video gaming." The analogy may be tempting to people who don't know much about video gaming. From a distance, playing a video game looks a little like gambling at a video screen in a casino. But think of the differences!
