The Chemical Carousel

What Science Tells Us About Beating Addiction, by Dirk Hanson.

My book on addiction research is now available for purchase online at AMAZON, BOOKSURGE, ABEBOOKS, AND ALIBRIS.

The Chemical Carousel is an in-depth look at addiction science and medical treatments for drug dependence and alcoholism. An experienced science and business journalist, author Hanson brings a complex and widely misunderstood subject out of the shadows and into the light of understanding. In this groundbreaking and highly readable examination of addiction science and the biological, emotional, and scientific underpinnings of substance abuse, The Chemical Carousel breaks through the myths, while presenting the surprising and cutting-edge facts about addiction and its medical origins. Hanson leaves no stone unturned in this invaluable examination of why people become addicted.

This is a great resource for those who may have wondered about addiction, and wondered how to help those who are addicted. I think the readability of it will be a very huge help. So many other things about addiction are impersonal and hard to read.
