Turning the science of addiction into stories that stick.
How addiction changes brain function.
Risk Factors for Developing a substance use disorder (SUD.)
Why addiction treatment can't be "one-size-fits-all."
Why engaging in treatment as early as possible is so important.
The animated series aims to expand public understanding about addiction and replace the myths and misinformation that keep substance use disorders (SUDs) from being treated like any other medical condition.
Educational episodes run two-to-three minutes and are meant to be consumed like “snack-packs” of key scientific information.
The content of each episode is the result of close collaboration between scientists, patients, families impacted by addiction, and members of our team.
A special thanks to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) for the science highlighted in the series.
