Addiction is a pervasive issue in our civilization. We see people addicted to everything from food and technology, to prescription drugs and heroin. But what really causes addiction? According to author Johann Hari’s extensive research, everything we think we know about addiction is wrong.
Driven to help his loved ones who were struggling to manage their addictions, Hari discovered that the true causes of addiction aren’t anything we’ve been told. And the way the world treats addicts is also wrong. Punishing them with negative stigmas and prison terms doesn’t inspire them to stop using.
In this deeply personal talk, Hari shares his worldwide journey to uncover the truth about the age-old problem of addiction. He also reveals surprising and hopeful new ways of overcoming it.
