Why Some People Need To Hit Rock Bottom To Get Help, With Dr. Tamir Aldad


I love a good redemption story.

And few things epitomize redemption better than successful recovery from addiction.

One of the fundamental aspects to recovery is a notion that you have to hit rock bottom to realize you are no longer a recreational user who has any control over how much, when, and where you use.

But what is it about needing to reach a breaking point in order to decide, once and for all, that you’re done using substances?

Joining me in this discussion is Dr. Tamir Aldad, an addiction psychiatrist and CEO of Mindful Care.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why “rock bottom” is a thing in addiction — and how we all play a role in that.
  • The new trend of harm reduction treatment versus complete abstinence — and why it works.
  • The hardest drug to come off of. The answer may surprise you!
