The Chemical Carousel

Like it or not, the popular imagination still views addiction not so much as a disease, but as the product of a weak-willed lifestyle. But, as biological psychology indicates, the concept is much more complicated. Hanson begins with an overview of drugs—use and abuse, legal and illegal—and how they work on our brains, with a particularly astute look at the roles of dopamine and serotonin and how nerve receptors function. He then shifts into methods of treating the disease of addiction, sociological as well as medical.

The Chemical Carousel

In a soothing bedside manner, Hanson serves forth the whole addiction picture without false promises or dire forecasts.
