Cartoon series aims to explain addiction


Addiction awareness advocates hope a new cartoon series aimed at explaining the science behind addiction — and addressing some misconceptions — leads to more understanding about the disease.

The series from the Addiction Policy Forum, a Washington, D.C.-based partnership of addiction awareness advocates, launched July 16 on YouTube. The first episode, “The Hijacker,” explains how using drugs can change people’s brains in a way that reprioritizes getting drugs over other survival needs, such as eating.
