This is a very special episode featuring Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, addiction psychiatrist, author, app developer, and associate professor of psychiatry at Brown University School of Medicine. Jud is a seasoned researcher of mindfulness interventions for addiction and developer of novel habit-change apps for abating anxiety and craving. A longtime Buddhist meditation practitioner Jud is a relentless data hound not an evangelist. He was among the first to use real-time neurofeedback and fMRI to study meditation and its effects. Our dialogue is devoid of hype and chockfull of useful insights on addiction, its true causes, and empirically-based self-applied applications for cessating craving, urges, unwanted substance use.
