Next Webinar: October 22 – Insights from Dr. Bruce Alexander
From Rat Park to the Adaptive Paradigm of Addiction: Insights from Dr. Bruce Alexander
For more than half a century, Dr. Bruce Alexander has studied addiction and proposed some of the most thought-provoking insights in the field. In 2008, he published the Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of Spirit where he proposed that human loneliness and disconnection from nurturing communities are the primary drivers behind addiction. While known for conducting the Rat Park experiment in the late 1970s showing that addiction is more a function of one’s environment than inherent in a person, he continues to believe the field of addiction is stuck theoretically, holds tightly to such things as the Myth of the Demon Drug, and has failed to evolve a universal definition of addiction that has produced improved treatments and outcomes as in other fields of medicine.
