Why is it that some people are able to go for many years with their cocaine and heroine addiction and then overcome them after arduous treatment? Why is it that some people are merely addicted to gambling but find it hard to recover? Why is it that some people are able to transcend and rise above their addictions, while others just can’t no matter how hard they try?
What is it that people really need to escape their addiction and achieve sustained recovery and sobriety? How can we really be free from our addictions?
Jackie Hillios, clinician and researcher, talks on TEDx to answer these questions and more. She tackles the issues of addiction and demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit and how it intersects with social contextual factors that enable those struggling with addiction to take up the challenge and go on the road to recovery and health.
