Virtually no one in our day is free from the impact of addiction, either through their own struggle with it, or that of a family member or loved one. While one lesson cannot qualify someone to be an addiction counselor, we do hope to provide a solid overview and framework for thinking about addiction. We address the questions of how to define addiction, how it affects our brain, is involvement in 12-step recovery necessary, the history and work of AA, etc. Then we finish by describing the essential qualities of a life free from addiction.
