Roots of Addiction: Fostering My Beautiful Brain
This course takes a fresh look at the ways biological and environmental factors contribute to addictions and compulsive behaviors. Research shows that any addiction results from a combination of inherited, learned, and practiced behaviors which can be treated and prevented. Alcohol, tobacco, prescription medications; illegal drugs including cocaine, heroin, and marijuana; and behaviors such as eating disorders, compulsive sexual activity, and compulsive gambling are also addressed. The unique role of spiritual awakening and service to others in recovery are also touched upon.

Worldwide, the use of Alcohol results in the most suffering and lives lost through homicide, violence, crime, homelessness, criminal justice, domestic violence, abuse of children, sexual abuse, automobile and other accidents, plus higher costs for businesses through lost productivity, healthcare rates and increased taxes for social services.
