A friend and colleague, Hugh Osborne, has introduced me to a video interview with Dr. Gabor Maté in May 2014, Seattle. Probably one of the most useful explanations and explorations I’ve heard of how we escape the present (or pain, boredom, low self-esteem, anguish, anxiety, depression, trauma, etc., etc.) through addiction.

Dr. Gabor Maté is a Hungarian-born Canadian physician who specializes in the study and treatment of addiction and is also widely recognized for his perspective on Attention Deficit Disorder. He has authored many books, including In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, my personal favourite.

Thank you Hugh Osborne
