Submission Harvard Psych. Denies Addiction Disease Theory->

Psyborgue writes: "Since Alcoholics Anonymous was founded, a debate has raged on as to whether addiction is a disease outside of a person's control requiring divine intervention, or whether it is within a person's power to control or end their usage.

Heyman suggests, like other books before him such as Stanton Peele's "Diseasing of America" and Jeffery Schaler's "Addiction is a Choice" that addiction is in fact a choice."
