SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, is set to air an impactful show, "The Biology of Desire," on Sunday, Jan. 29, at 5 p.m. Pacific time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. The broadcast will define desire and how desire can develop into addiction. The show 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 include 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. In addition, the panelists have a debate on whether addiction is a disease, and if so, how it should be treated.
"Most addicts do recover," says Dr. Lewis. "They're able to recover from drugs, alcohol, sex and porn addiction, gambling and smoking. The brain changes and most people can get over their addiction."
"Why does one person end up using drugs or alcohol continuously and why does another person not?" asks Dr. Bhatt. "I look at the impact of what might've been the initial driver for someone who's seeking out drugs or alcohol, which was the pursuit of pleasure. We're unable to anticipate the ultimate relationship that will occur between a drug and your brain."
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.
