Not strictly a dharma talk, Peter shares a user-friendly review of current thinking regarding the Medical-Scientific model of addiction.

He completed his residency training in Internal Medicine in the Navy, where he first got involved—some thirty years ago—in what is now called Addiction Medicine. He completed a two-year fellowship in Substance Abuse at the SF VA Medical Center and currently works for Kaiser SF in its Chemical Dependency Recovery Program. He has been a member of the GBF for the last ten years.
