Dopamine Nation

Dr. Anna Lembke

Overview

From drugs and food to gaming and social media, humans have transformed our modern environment into one full of consumption options. But what is this overabundance of highly rewarding stimuli actually doing to our brains?

Dr. Anna Lembke is a psychiatrist and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic, specializing in all forms of addiction. In this book, Lembke explores how our modern environment disrupts the chemical balance in our brains, leading many to addiction.

Today everyone has their drug of choice, whether it's sugar or shopping, vaping, or voyeurism. With solid research and real-life case studies of the author's psychiatric patients, Dopamine Nation offers practical solutions for how to find balance in an addictive world.
