Dr. Stanton Peele is a lawyer, professor, psychologist, psychotherapist, and author. Of all of these titles, he’s probably best known as an advocate and pioneer in the addiction and treatment world. His new memoir, A Scientific Life on the Edge: My Lonely Quest to Change How We See Addiction, is his 16th book that tackles addiction issues.

  • The reaction from when his first book, Love and Addiction, was published advocating a new way to conceptualize addiction
  • The possibility that Tom Brady is addicted to football and what it’s costing him
  • How people can flounder against society’s feedback
  • Addiction not being limited to substances
  • The basis of Life Process Program
  • How SMART correlates to his thoughts on addiction
  • The steps cities and states are taking to implement harm reduction
