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.

The question, should professional sports teams spend as much resources on the mental health of players as they do on physical health? Recent developments lead us to believe that professional sports players are engaging in behaviors that cause us to suspect their judgement. What responsibility,if any, do the leagues have in encouraging mental health and emotional wellness in their players?
Let's discuss this on the next episode of Discussions with Delia on BlogTalkRadio, 6:30pm on Wednesday. I hope you can join in the conversation.
