Former drug addict turned UCLA-trained addiction expert Dr. Adi Jaffe proves that there is always more to people than meets the eye and it's impossible to describe another human using a single word. The co-founder of Alternatives Addiction Treatment, Dr. Jaffe is a wealth of knowledge on the connection between labels and addictive behavior.
In this clip, he discusses the pervasiveness of labels in today's society. We assign labels to nearly everything, and we often forget just how powerful they become once applied to people. A story from Dr. Jaffe's childhood illustrates how misleading these labels can ultimately become.
