Addiction, connection and the role of purpose

Is everything we think we understand about addiction wrong? Have we traded stuff for connections? Are we addicted because we have bonded with something that enables us to escape from the realities of our lives?

These are all questions asked by Johann Hari in his Ted talk. He addresses what really causes addiction and how can we overcome it. As he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions he has wondered why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.

If someone in your life is struggling or if you personally are struggling – this presentation addresses major questions and helps us to think about how we might help support ourselves or those in our lives who face this daily battle.
