SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an impactful new show, "The Biology of Desire." The program, which defined desire and how desire can develop into addiction, aired Sunday, Jan. 29, at 5 p.m. PST on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. "In your Right Mind" is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's panelists included Ashish "Ash" Bhatt, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Sovereign Health, highly recognized for his thorough and comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and assessment processes; and Marc Lewis, Ph.D., a neuroscientist and author/co-author of over 50 journal publications in psychology, cognitive science and neuroscience.
"The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as a chronic brain disease," said Dr. Bhatt. "It becomes difficult when we talk about and compare process addiction treatment with substance abuse addiction. This sometimes leads to a lot of fallacious thinking and errors in conclusions."
Dr. Lewis stated in the broadcast, "I found my perspective when I began to really understand how habits develop in a personality, how habits get stuck, how people end up doing things that they shouldn't be doing and don't want to be doing and have a hard time stopping. That's when I began to understand that addiction is one of those things [habits]."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
