Who doesn’t want more joy in their life? The fact is that low joy levels are the best indicator that someone is at high risk for an addictive lifestyle. The higher your level of joy is, the less vulnerable you are to getting caught up in the addictive cycle. Building the capacity for increased joy and the skills needed to live a joyful life are both possible. Join us as Ed Khouri brings hope for healing from, and staying free from addiction in his third and last episode on the Healing Addiction series with Beyond Abuse Radio.

The Holding Cell is a 35 minute film that’s creating a big buzz while debuting at film festivals across the country, which is based on true stories about real teenagers and the many factors that go into a teens' decision to begin abusing drugs and alcohol. The film shows the progression of drug abuse and the devastating impact that addiction has on teen lives. Join us for the conversation at Noon PST Thursday November 6th, at 1:00 PM.
Did you know... North American governments
Spend over 51 BILLION dollars a year on the War on Drugs?
Yet these same governments do very little to treat addiction and the "poverty of the spirit" that engenders this addiction.
Dr. Bruce K. Alexander is a Canadian psychologist who believes that society is drowning in addictions, to alchohol, drug use and a thousand other habits. He maintains the reason for this is a growing disconnect as people around are torn from the close ties to family, culture, and traditional spirituality. Alexendar says this rift and lack of social integration has destroyed what used to constitute the normal fabric of societal life.
For many, addiction serves as a substitute for the connectedness for which they long and which provides context and meaning for their lives.
Alexander believes because societal determinants are so much more powerful that individual ones, that addiction is much more a social problem than an individual disorder. This is why he feels that the War on Drugs is so wrong-headed.
Alexander's book, The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit presents a new look at the nature of addiction, how society should view addicts, and more effective treatments for addiction.
Bruce Alexander is a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, where he has worked since 1970. His primary research interest has been the psychology of addiction. He is best known in the UK for the "Rat Park" experiments, which helped to demonstrate the falsity of the outworn belief that simple exposure to narcotic drugs can cause addiction.

Relationships are the stuff of our deepest pain and joy. They can leave gaping holes that cause great vulnerability to addiction, and they are also a large part of healing addictions. Ed Khouri shares a fascinating piece of research that links trauma through early attachment problems to dopamine receptor density that affects the ability to regulate pain, pleasure, and emotions. That sets the bar for the level of relational joy in people’s lives. Propensity for addiction increases radically when relational joy is low. What can be done to increase our joy bonds? Lots! Join Beyond Abuse Radio as we explore the connection between addiction and attachment and catch the hope for healing.

( Rescheduled from 9-25-14) Addiction changes the brain. Getting free from addiction is a challenging process because it requires breaking deeply ingrained patterns of the brain and creating new ways of thinking, acting, and relating. Ed Khouri, addiction specialist with The Life Model, will share the first steps to breaking addiction behavior, coming to terms with the cost of addiction, how addictions hijack the attachment center of the brain, and skills needed to increase the capacity of our brains to process the trauma that is often the underlying cause of addiction. Ed’s work in addiction recovery led him to understand that BEEPS (Behaviors, Events, Experiences and Substances that help regulate emotions, reduce pain or increase pleasure) take over the attachment system in an attempt to replace relationships as the source of joy. By dealing with the force behind all addictions, Ed Khouri and the Thriving program allow people with many different forms of addiction or codependency to recover together. Ed now works training people globally to help others become free of addiction and live in joyful community.
