Every human brain as two parts: LIMBIC, sometimes called the “primitive” brain, and the CORTEX, often called the “thinking” brain.
The limbic brain impulsively pursues security, pleasure and freedom from hunger or pain. The cortex brain puts limits on these primitive drives, making us more appropriate to civilized living and social success.
When craving to drink or drug overtakes the decision to be appropriate, trouble is on the way. The brain wants to help. But the brain is in conflict with itself. Some scientists even say that too much alcohol and other drugs “highjack” the brain.
Understanding addiction and recovery science gives individuals new tools for coping with addiction illness.
