Project Main Details

Understanding Addiction as a Disease 
The audience for the video is high school students, so we want to make sure we can connect with them. While the video deals with a very serious subject, we want the voiceover to still be on the positive side with some inflection. We like the tone of voiceovers in these videos: http://www.buck.tv/work/lets-talk-cost/.

The pacing would possibly need to be a little slower than those videos to allow the students time to digest the information.

Script Details

Custom demo required 
It’s important to understand that everyone in the world has addictions; or rather “natural addictions” to things that are good; like food, water, and sleep.

These natural addictions are important for our health and survival, and without them, we would not hunger or crave the things our body needs to survive.

Now, we aren't exactly born with these natural addictions, our body creates them.

Let’s look at an example:

When you bite into an apple, your brain says YUM! Your brain recognizes that this apple is good for you; it has nutrition, vitamins, and gives your body the energy it needs to survive.

Whenever the brain recognizes something that is good, it releases a chemical called “Dopamine”.

Dopamine causes you to experience pleasure… it's what makes you feel good, like when biting into an apple. The brain releases this dopamine in order to teach the body that this is healthy and good for your survival, and that it should remember to do it again.

Now there are other things we do that can release the pleasurable dopamine, like playing video games, exercising, or reading a good book. However, the amount of dopamine released during these activities is less than what’s released when we eat food.

The brain does this so it can recognize which is more important; so if you go 2 days without reading a book, or two days without eating food, your body is going to crave the food over the book.

As such, your brain creates what is called a “Hierarchy of Survival”, which ranks how important each of these things is to your survival.
