Unified Field Theory of Addiction – Gabor Mate Hungry Ghosts Pt. 2

RMA-Episode 18 Show Notes:

Greetings fellow travellers! This week on RMA we continue our deep dive into Dr. Gabor Mate’s In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts and deconstruct his theory of addiction in excruciating detail. Plus, Mike and Nat get debate an issue of grave importance to our times-real or artificial Christmas tree?

Plus, the weekly wrap-up,  a new 5 star review, Recovery in the News and The Week in Weird on a snowy, theoretical, inimical episode 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.
