|Subject: Scientists have identified 3 keys to addiction in the brain Fri Oct 28, 2016 9:58 pm|| |
|Why can't you quit drinking? Why can't your dad quit cigarettes? Why can't your friend quit cocaine?|
There's an easy, incomplete answer: You have addictions. You have a disorder that compromises the mechanisms in your brain that lead you toward better choices.
But what does that mean, really? If addiction is a disease, what does it look like? Is it the same from drug to drug or addicted person to addicted person?
A new paper from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism offers a new framework for describing and understanding addiction writ large.
That's a big deal, because it offers researchers a system for dealing with addiction as a single neurological problem, and fitting the puzzle pieces individual kinds of habitual substance abuse into a larger whole.
