Addiction: Are We All Wrong About Its Causes?
In his bestselling book 'Chasing the Scream,' British journalist Johann Hari says we're getting addiction all wrong.
The number of lives ruined through addiction to drugs is staggering. But the physical addiction is only one part of the problem, and it seems that release from its grip is more of a matter of interpersonal connection than biochemical dependency.
Christians who emphasize the potency of family, love, and personal relationships as an intrinsic aspect of the human soul – in opposition to the Enlightenment emphasis on autonomy and material nature – might not be as surprised.
“The opposite of addiction is not sobriety,” Johann Hari writes. “It is human connection.”
