"All this is simply to say that all life is interrelated. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality; tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.... I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be".
-Martin Luther King Jr.
Addiction & Connection
Addiction, substance abuse, over-dependence on pain medication, prescription drugs for treatment of anxiety & depression, prison capacities and suicide are at an all time high in America. These have been compounded by the affects of Covid- Isolation, social distancing, business closures, job losses, etc. Clearly our methods and programs to address these concerns have been ineffective.
A new school of thought is considering the cause to be a loss of connection. And the treatment methods are based in re-connection.
