This is a candid and intimate interview with Dr. Gabor Maté.
A renowned speaker, and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
As an author, Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning “In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction”; “When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress”; and “Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder”.

Gabor speaks with Joanna about the distinction between abstinence and sobriety; essential dignity; teacher plants and integration; the loss of essence; the love and shedding the illusion; the liveliness of truth.
