WEBINAR: Love and Addiction Revisited with Stanton Peele and Archie Brodsky

Stanton Peele and Archie Brodsky joined SMART Recovery for a webinar discussing concepts of addictions with a focus on love and relationships. At the the forefront of redefining addiction as something that goes beyond any particular substance and is, rather, a human phenomenon that can develop along a spectrum of severity in the relationships we form with others, with substances, or with behaviors and activities.

In 1975, the ideas in their ground-breaking book, Love and Addiction, were shocking. More recently, much of their work has come to be accepted as common knowledge in the fields of psychology and addiction treatment professions. As the general public recognizes that emotional, cognitive, social and cultural factors all play a role, we will continue to see an evolution in thought regarding addiction, and the best approaches to helping people.

Stanton Peele, Ph.D., J.D., is a seminal figure in the field of addiction and recovery. Dr. Peele is a pioneer in applying addiction concepts to include self-cure, harm reduction, and social-environmental causes of addiction. His online Life Process Program has been developed to extend availability of treatment by leveraging technology.  His most recent book, with Ilse Thompson, is Recover! Stop Thinking Like an Addict and Reclaim Your Life with The Life Process. Since publication of Love and Addiction in 1975, he has written twelve books and over 250 professional and popular articles. He continues to lecture internationally on the meaning, treatment, and future of addiction. Additional information and a huge archive of articles can be found at Dr. Peele’s online addiction recovery treatment program website:

Archie Brodsky is co-founder of the Program in Psychiatry and the Law at Harvard Medical School. In addition to Love and Addiction he has co-authored 15 books, including The Truth about Addiction and Recovery (with Stanton Peele), Preventing Boundary Violations in Clinical Practice, and Clinical Supervision in Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counseling. Mr. Brodsky is on the board of directors of The Influence Foundation, which recently launched the website to advocate for rational and compassionate approaches to drug use, drug policy, and human rights. He is a former chair of the Human Rights Committee at Massachusetts Mental Health Center.
