Upcoming Broadcasts

Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. Stanton Peele points out that most people recover from addictions on their own -- without AA or rehab, and what makes the difference is values, not biology. On tonight's show, he'll debunk many of the myths in addiction treatment -- especially the notion that addiction is a ?disease? people are powerless to overcome. That defeatest message is especially counterproductive to overcoming addiction, and it's been supported with bad science and hearsay. Join us tonight to hear what solid science says about how addiction or bad habits can be overcome -- to the point where people are not just going cold-turkey off some substance or behavior till their next relapse, but where they develop meaningful ways of coping that no longer have them turning to their old crutch. Peele's book we'll be discussing is Recover! Stop Thinking Like an Addict and Reclaim Your Life with The PERFECT Program.
