Using the spectacular landscape of Utah’s State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction, Kevin McCauley turns complex neuro-scientific concepts into easy-to-understand visual images that will help people in recovery feel better understood, and their families and friends feel hope that recovery is possible.
