How should we help people who struggle with addiction?

I have posted this video before, but at some point deleted it because I was not completely happy with the overall quality. That said, it’s not bad, and the content is still very relevant to the site. I am posting it here because I have yet to get back to the camera and do an improved version, and I want to make sure the basic principles of treatment are available to all. One final comment. I have continued to refine how I think about and talk about treatment, and now refer to intervention in 5 actions. Although the video does not specifically use this framework, I do discuss each of the five actions. If you watch the video and then check out the 5 actions link you will be good to go. Enjoy!
