An Interview with Nora D. Volkow, M.D. Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Dr. Nora Volkow addresses a wide range of issues in this program such as: addiction as a brain disease; the stigma associated with addiction; the adolescent addict; relapse; and the effectiveness of combining behavioral therapies with medication. While Volkow argues that addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease of the brain, she also stresses the brain's enormous capacity to recover with the right comprehensive treatments.
