Today author Steven Slate joins the show to talk about addiction with Felony Friday host John Odermatt. Steven was drawn to study addiction as a result of his own struggles with drug abuse. Steven and John discuss a controversial book that Steven co-authored with Marc Sheeren and Michele Dunbar, The Freedom Model for Addictions: Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap.
The book calls into questions many commonly held beliefs in regards to addiction. Some of the questions it asks are as follows:
- Is addiction a disease?
- Is treatment the only way to deal with it?
- When people say they don't need treatment, are they in denial?
- Is moderate consumption always off limits for people who have had problems?
