Close Encounters with Addiction Countering prevailing notions of addiction as either a genetic disease or an individual moral failure, Dr. Gabor Maté presents an eloquent case that all addiction is in fact a case of human development gone askew. Blending first-person accounts, riveting case studies, cutting-edge research and passionate argument, Dr. Mate proposes a compassionate approach to helping drug addicts and, for the many behaviour addicts among us, to addressing the void addiction is meant to fill. Dr. Maté looks at his own history of compulsive behaviour, weaving a story of real people who struggle with addiction with the latest research on addiction and the brain. Other books by Dr. Gabor Maté include Scattered Minds: The Origins & Healing of ADD, When The Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress, and The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, & Healing ln A Toxic Culture.
