Our first, most treasured resource was the CD my husband and I listened to that helped soften our hearts and understand for the first time that addiction was a disease of the midbrain. Kevin McCauley, M.D, and Jim Clegg’s team at the "Institute For Addiction Study" are dedicated to helping families and professionals understand addiction. They have also produced a very popular DVD called, "Pleasure Unwoven", that is being shown in many hospitals across the nation to people having surgeries that will warrant pain medication after surgery. The CD and DVD are listed below:
CD: "Disease 1, the disease model of addiction-part one for friends, family, employers"
