DR. DAVE LEMON
Neuropsychologist and Addiction Specialist

There is a release of this ‘feel good’ type chemistry, called dopamine that is produced in the nucleus accumbens. It is very busy and active during the bump that one feels around their active street art addiction. Hallmarks to addiction are craving, compulsive behavior that you can’t stop and interference with different areas of your life, socially and behaviorally.
