Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – What is Craving?

Do we all have cravings? Is it only addicts who crave things? Families and loved ones often wonder what to do when their addicts who are in recovery start to have cravings. Addicts also can use some of these helpful tools and skills. This week we get into this topic with Dr. Omar Manejwala, the author of “Craving: Why We Can’t Seem to Get Enough?” Dr. Manejwala is the Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Catasys in Los Angeles and a former Medical Director at Hazelden Foundatioin. He is a transformative speaker and appears frequently in the national media to address the topic of addiction.
