Apr 21 2022 • 36 mins

Depending on the approach, addictions may be seen as diseases to be treated, habits to be un-learned, or a mix of both. Mark discusses these conceptual models with two prominent researchers and physicians. First, neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Jud Brewer talks about the conditioning approach to habit formation, and the mindful way out. Then, psychiatrist and psychedelics research Dr. Ben Sessa unpacks how we can re-open critical periods to loosen previously engrained maladaptive coping patterns.
