- November 1, 2022
- REAL LIFE CHALLENGES
Addiction affects many people . . . people you know, love, or work with—perhaps even you. What happens to our brains when we become addicted to substances like alcohol or drugs or to behaviors like gambling? And what can we do about it? In this episode, we hear a very personal story about how alcohol addiction affected an HPE team member’s life. We also talk to an addiction and medical expert who was New York’s “chief” psychiatrist during times when the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Sandy affected the mental health of millions of people. Guests: HPE team member Allison; Lloyd I. Sederer, MD, psychiatrist, teacher, public health administrator, and author.
