A renowned researcher before becoming director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Dr. Nora Volkow has been a tireless investigator into the causes of substance abuse and an advocate for the development of more effective addiction treatments. In this program, Dr. Volkow addresses a wide range of issues, including addiction as a brain disease, the stigma associated with addiction, the adolescent addict, relapse, and the effectiveness of combining behavioral therapies with medication. While Volkow argues that addiction is a chronic, recurring disease of the brain, she also stresses the brain's enormous capacity to recover with the right comprehensive treatments.
