Ep. 15: Interview of Adi Jaffe (Addiction)

Interview of Adi Jaffe: Addiction, Books, & Myths


In this episode of the Candace Duff Show, I interview Dr. Adi Jaffe – a world renowned addiction expert, the CEO of IGNTD, the creator of the IGNTD podcast and the author of “The Abstinence Myth: A New Approach for Overcoming Addiction Without Shame, Judgment, Or Rules.”

He and I had a fascinating talk about drugs, addiction, books, and myths. We also talked about peer pressure, feelings, cultural issues and psychology.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • Why so many of our children become addicted to drugs every day
  • Why abstinence is a myth
  • A new approach to overcoming drug dependence
  • The role that shame plays in this scenario
  • How writing a book has helped Dr. Jaffe with his mission
