The CBS news magazine “48 Hours” is scheduled to air a one-hour program tonight on addictions, including a piece about sexual addictions and a Vanderbilt research project involving functional MRI. The news crew, including correspondent Harold Dow, were here in July interviewing Dr. Peter Martin, professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology and director of the Division of Addiction Medicine, Dr. Reid Finlayson, assistant professor of Psychiatry and director of the Comprehensive Assessment Program for Professionals, and Dr. Mitchell Parks, a research fellow in Psychiatry.
