A good introduction to Dr. Gabor Mate's insights into addiction. Mate (mah-TAY) shows that addiction is caused not by chemical substances but by the complex interaction of brain, experience, the environment (including society & the economy), and chemical substances.

And since The System's "War on Drugs" does little good and much harm, could its REAL goals be more sinister than its professed goals?
This program replays parts of an interview with Mate (January 2010) by Mike McCormick, on "Mind Over Matters," and parts of a speech Mate gave in Berkeley in November 2011 (courtesy of the National Radio Project and "Making Contact"). Many thanks to both sources. For the original programs, please see the following: "Mind Over Matters" = . "Making Contact = .
