What William Cope Moyers is going to talk about in Hawaii is an example of the problem rather than the solution. If you read his book you will see that he advocates the hijacked brain hypothesis as the cause of addictions. The addiction epidemic is based on the belief and use of this proven wrong theory which he will support in his speach. The fact is that he knows nothing about addiction science and only parrots what the addiction establishment tells him like a good little boy. He's a tool of the addiction establishment which is raking in the money caused by the suffering of addicts caused by the hijacked brain hypothesis. The proven wrong hijacked brain hypothesis is what is stigmatizing and killing addicts. Read my paper on this and the replacement theory based on the real science of addiction causation: http://www.nvo.com/hypoism/hypoismhypothesis/
Until the public learns about this we will continue to experience the worsening of the addiction epidemic.
