Addicts interest and bewilder us. We see them as all alike, but we know they're not. Sometimes we think of them as diseased, sometimes as simply out of control. Their distinctive manner of being ill calls out to screenwriters and novelists, and sometimes doctors.
Michael Stein, M.D., is Professor of Medicine, Health Services, Policy and Practice at Brown University, where he runs a large NIH-funded laboratory that studies risk-taking and substance abuse. He is the award-winning author of two books of nonfiction, "The Addict" and "The Lonely Patient," and six novels. "Monogamy," a new novel, is forthcoming.
This talk is sponsored by the Department of Psychology, the Office of Health Professions, Student Development, Wellness Programming, Health Services, and the Counseling Center.
