On this episode, we'll be talking to Dr. Chas Gant about the causes and solutions to addiction. Here are his initial thoughts to get us started...
"Over the years, various approaches to solving addictions have been tried with marginal success.
Historically, addiction was first thought to be a moral problem to be addressed by law enforcement. In the early 20th century, a psychological/psychoanalytic model was adopted, based on the poorly substantiated belief that addicts and alcoholics were simply medicating their emotional wounds.
Alcoholics Anonymous then emerged and achieved a modicum of success by promoting the 12-step philosophy, which bypasses immorality or psychological rationales as the cause, focusing instead on spirituality.
The psychopharmacological approach came next. It was based on the assumption that addiction is caused by a or Prozac deficiency in the brain. Substantial education and prevention efforts have also been made for decades.
For the most part, addictions are currently handled by some combination of these models, but with marginal success.
How can we do better? All of these approaches have made contributions, but none of them fully addresses the critical brain/body connection, so let’s explore the little known scientific facts about addiction.
The good news is, we now have the tools to break this hopeless cycle." Dr. Chas

2nd Guest: Allison Carman
Allison Carmen spent many years fighting a powerful addiction. It wasn’t drugs, alcohol or fame. It was an addiction to certainty. If she didn’t know what the future would bring – and who does? – she felt anxious and afraid. This decades-long struggle followed her through college, marriage, parenthood, and a successful law career. While everything seemed fine from the outside, Allison was in a constant battle that was unwinnable, sapping her energy, attention, and spirit. Until the day she discovered the power of Maybe. Maybe is a simple yet powerful philosophy that has transformed Allison’s life, and the life of her many clients (now that she has ditched her legal career and has become a successful business consultant and life coach).
