Author Marc Lewis 됈 Dr Lewis a former addict who recovered to become a distinguished neuroscientist and author writes engagingly about the addictive experience, the recovery experience and the science behind them Whether you are looking for a foundation in the neuroscience of addiction, guidelines for recovery or just hope that recovery is possible, it s all here The scientific information is presented in the context of day to day behavior and the lives of individuals you will come to care about You ll learn about neuroscience and human development and psychology than you may have thought possible Informed by this book, you ll see how neuroscience explains addiction as a part of life, rather than a mysterious entity only experts can understand.Tom Horvath, Ph.D., President of ABPP, Practical Recover, and SMART Recovery and author of Sex, Drugs, Gambling rather they have become connected to others, wiser, and in touch with their own humanity This is a hopeful message that has, as Lewis demonstrates, the advantage of also being true.Gene Heyman, author of Addiction Disorder of Choice The Biology of Desire says a lot about the brain mechanisms underpinning addiction but, to its credit, does not stop there With minor exceptions, we do not help addicts and they do not help themselves by ministering directly to their brains As Mr Lewis stresses throughout this unorthodox but enlightening book, people learn to be addicts, and, with effort, they can learn not to be addicts, too Wall Street JournalInformed by unparalleled neuroscientific insight and written with his usual flare, Marc Lewis s The Biology of Desire effectively refutes the medical view of addiction as a primary brain disease A bracing and informative corrective to the muddle that now characterizes public and professional discourse on this topic.Gabor Mat, M.D., author of In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts Close Encounters With AddictionNeuroscientist Lewis delves into the functioning of the addicted brain He intends to demonstrate that addiction substance abuse but also behavioral addictions such as eating disorders, gambling, etc is not a disease.This objective is met by the detailed life stories of five recovering addicts the author has interviewed Their descent into the grips of addiction reads like passages of a junkie s memoir terrifying and page turning T his work helps make sense of how addiction operates and is recommended for readers wanting to learn on the topic Library JournalWINNER OF THE 2016 PROSE AWARD IN PSYCHOLOGY Through the vivid, true stories of five people who journeyed into and out of addiction, a renowned neuroscientist explains why the disease model of addiction is wrong, and illuminates the path to recovery.The psychiatric establishment and rehab industry in the Western world have branded addiction a brain disease, based on evidence that brains change with drug use But in The Biology of Desire, cognitive neuroscientist and former addict Marc Lewis makes a convincing case that addiction is not a disease, and shows why the disease model has become an obstacle to healing Lewis reveals addiction as an unintended consequence of the brain doing what it s supposed to do seek pleasure and relief in a world that s not cooperating Brains are designed to restructure themselves with normal learning and development, but this process is accelerated in addiction when highly attractive rewards are pursued repeatedly Lewis shows why treatment based on the disease model so often fails, and how treatment can be retooled to achieve lasting recovery, given the realities of brain plasticity Combining intimate human stories with clearly rendered scientific explanation, The Biology of Desire is enlightening and optimistic reading for anyone who has wrestled with addiction either personally or professionally PRAISE FOR MARC LEWIS L ooks at how addiction and brain science collide, and how understanding our brains can help addicts get out of the
