Gabor Mate is one of the leading addiction treatment providers of our time. He is also a physician, speaker and writer who thinks deeply about what ails us as human beings and how to address and heal not just the symptoms but the core issues. In this book, he writes about his work with addicts in the drug ghetto on Vancouver’s downtown eastside. He talks about his own struggles with addiction and what is happening for us as a human collective around these issues. This book is not short, but it is well worth the read. If nothing else, pick it up and read Part VII of the book called The Ecology of Healing. If you are in recovery, these few chapters will give you invaluable suggestions for continuing your growth and healing.
