#3 - The Truth About Addiction with Koorosh Rassekh

Break The Chain Podcast

It was such a privilege to interview Koorosh Rassekh, one of the leading experts in addiction.  He is the founder of Evo health and wellness and a student and colleague of Gabor Maté. One of the world's most forward-thinking experts in addiction.   We discussed the root causes of addiction and ways to deal with this problem.   We talk about one of Gabor Maté's quotes, "it's not why the addiction, but rather why the pain" He explains that addiction is a very rational behavior because all we are trying to do is get out of pain. we should therefore not condemn our actions but rather look for a solution to a problem.  We discussed a wide range of topics and I have learned so much from this conversation. I have already listened to it 3 times before posting this.   I sincerely hope that you enjoy it!  https://evohealthandwellness.com/ Find out more about Break The Chain below linktr.ee/breakthechain
