About this Episode

Addiction has a pervasive impact on our culture, ranging from legally available opioids and alcohol to illicit narcotics; addiction even manifests itself in mundane areas of our lives as well.

The challenge to overcome and conquer addiction can seem overwhelming to those held captive by it. And it is too often the case that relapse is experienced as an all-encompassing failure. In this episode of Working with Dan Doriani, Dan talks with Dr. Nii Addy, a professor at Yale and an expert in the neurobiology of addiction. On a hopeful note, Dr. Addy argues that relapse is but one step along the way to success; in fact, repeated attempts are the greatest indicator of success in breaking addiction. Listen as Dan and Nii discuss our brain’s role in addiction, recovery, and the healing power of prayer.
