The Addictive Brain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ADDICTION IS A CHRONIC BRAIN DISEASE AND NOT A MORAL FAILURE.

Addictive drugs provide a shortcut to the brain’s reward system by flooding the nucleus accumbens with dopamine. The hippocampus lays down memories of this rapid sense of satisfaction, and the amygdala creates a conditioned response to certain stimuli.

At the Duncan Mental and Addiction Clinic, counseling and medications will be used to change the addictive brain to a healthy one.
