Brain Development & Addiction with Gabor Mate

by Neseret on February 19, 2012

Winter aconitesToday I want to take a quick moment and share with you this wonderful video by Gabor Mate about addiction. This is a must see video for those of you who are struggling with addiction.

It is also a great video for those of you who care about someone who is struggling with addiction, mental health professionals included.

What I LOVE about Gabor Mate and the way he explains addiction is that he addresses the root cause of addiction both biologically, and environmentally. He shows the clear relationship between addiction, genetics and environment! He also touches on the larger societal problem of addiction not just to substances but to everything.

He talks about acceptance and compassion as being the greatest healing forces.

I know you are going to ENJOY this video! It is going to give you a HUGE piece of the puzzle in your journey of recovery.

Please take the time to watch it. It is a little over an hour but it will be WORTH every minute.

After you watah it please share it on Facebook and Twitter. Share it with people you care about.

Share it with EVERYONE to help illimnate stigma. Thank you.

PS: This video is a little slow in the beginning but it gets better and better!
