  • Dr. Stanton Peele and Zach Rhoads -Do Opioids Hijack Your Brain? Is Addiction a Broken Brain Disease? Episode 38

    Episode 38 - 11/16/23

    Link to Episode

    Show Notes

    We interview Dr. Stanton Peele and Zach Rhoads about addiction, Suboxone, pain patients, Harm Reduction, and more! You won't want to miss this episode.

    Dr. Stanton Peele is a psychologist who has pioneered, among other things, the idea that addiction occurs with a range of experiences and recognition of natural recovery from addiction. He developed the Life Process Program for addiction. He has authored many books since the 1975 publication of Love and Addiction (co-authored by Archie Brodsky); his latest is A Scientific Life on the Edge: My Lonely Quest to Change How We See Addiction.

    Zach Rhoads- Zach is a behavior specialist in Vermont schools and his school's PBiS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) coordinator. Zach is a counselor and family systems developer for the online Life Process Program - an addiction coaching program developed by psychologist Dr. Stanton Peele. He also writes articles about health and drug policy for Filter Magazine and is coauthor (with Dr. Stanton Peele) of the book, Outgrowing Addiction. (He is currently working on a forthcoming book about student-led education in the United States). Zach believes that community collaboration and cohesion is a bulwark against many forms of mental illness and addiction, and helps people find these resources in ways that makes sense in their own lives.

    The Doctor Patient Forum is a national non profit organization fighting for the rights of pain patients and their providers. We bring awareness to the untreated pain and patient abandonment crisis. We are also knows as Don’t Punish Pain Rally.
