Trapped: Understanding Addiction

Ahana Wokhlu

Trapped: Understanding Addiction explores the medical aspects and social implications of addiction. In this podcast, I’ll talk to experts about the science behind addictive behavior, how various substances affect the brain and body, how addiction impacts specific populations uniquely, and how our views on addiction and treatment have evolved. I will also speak with people who have had first-hand experience with a substance use disorder and get their insight on what it’s like to live with this condition.
