New Year’s Resolutions! Gabor Mate: 4 Step Process

RMA-Episode 19 Show Notes:


Happy New Year everyone! It’s out with the old and in with the new on the first episode of RMA for 2021. This week Mike and Nat get caught up on their holidays and talk about renewal and new beginnings. Recovery in January is on a lot of resolution lists and the boys break it all down. The guys also continue their analysis of Gabor Mate’s realm of Hungry Ghosts.


Plus, Recovery in the News and the Week in Weird on a resolute, forward-thinking, dry January edition of Recovery in the Middle Ages.

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
