Celebrating Alcohol Awareness Month
The presentation of the HBO Documentary, "Addiction: Why They Can't Just Stop," from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, is free and open to the public. The film will be presented in the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration auditorium and is a part of the Psychology Film Series.
The film explores the hidden American epidemic of addiction through the use of personal narratives, statistics and interviews with experts on the subject. The film counters the myth that addicts are weak and immoral, discusses research that shows the effects of chemical dependency on the brain, and asserts that it is virtually impossible for addicts to simply quit.
