The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think


Stashed in: Addiction, Context

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Is addiction a simple chemical hook -- give enough cocaine to 100 people for 60 days and they will all be addicts -- or is it all about the social context?

It's more about context that people used to give it credit for. 

The analogy of Rat Park sticks with me. 

Addiction is not you, it's your cage.
