LISTEN: The Hijacked Brain

By Bill and Joel

We see the outward affects drug addiction can have. But what about those we can't see? Dr. Merrill Norton, a registered pharmacist and associate professor at the University of Georgia, discusses the chemical changes to the brain that can turn casual use into extreme addiction. This is especially pronounced in the still-forming adolecent brain.

Fortunately Dr. Norton reports this process can be slowly reversed. Counseling and support meetings amoung other approaches help to refocus the brain.
