Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction, by Maia Szalavitz
A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction

Maia Szalavitz is an award-winning author and journalist who covers addiction and neuroscience. Her latest book, the New York Times bestseller, Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction uses her own story of recovery from heroin and cocaine addiction to explore how reframing addiction as a learning disorder can transform prevention, treatment and policy. The first hardcover edition was published by St. Martin’s Books in April 2016, and the first paperback edition is being released in spring of 2017.

Her work speaks to people with addiction, their family members, policy makers, concerned community members, politicians, treatment providers, physicians, social service agencies affected by addiction, university communities, criminal justice officials, and others who want to improve the way we prevent, treat and manage drug problems.
