Brain Science; Porn Addiction,
If you've been reading our
Candeo articles or listening to our podcasts, you know that one of our areas of
intense focus is the “brain science behind pornography addiction. In our full
recovery training program, we explore this brain science in great detail. We
look at questions like: How does
pornography viewing alter the physical and chemical structure of the brain? How
does addiction circuitry develop in the brain and why does it have such a
radical impact on human behavior? Once this addiction circuitry is formed, how
does one shrink this circuitry, build new healthy circuitry and return to
ability to overcome addiction is built into the very structure of the brain
itself. It simply requires an understanding of how the brain works and how to
harness and direct its power for change.
