The business of recovery is changing fast. Many executives are getting left behind. The Recovery Executive Podcast talks to experts in the field on marketing, operations, M&As, billing, and growth to help you build your organization, serve more of those who need help, and stay on top.
Put simply, addiction is extremely complicated. It's not genetics, it's not choice, it's not neurochemical imbalances. Instead, it's a complex interaction of all of these.
On this episode, I have one of the world's leading neuroscientists on addiction, Dr. Marc Lewis, walk us through the neurobiology of addiction in laymen's terms. My hope is that we're able to bridge some of the gap between the neuroscience and clinical practice, something notoriously difficult to do, but I believe we provide some strong insights on ways to do so.
