On addressing the opioid epidemic

“[the repercussions of personal, ancestral, collective trauma] .. you can’t just erase that w a treatment program. What this sickness of addiction is bringing to light, and what addiction’s always doing is bringing things to light, is that like all illness, addiction presents an opportunity for healing, whether its the body or the earth or the person presenting a healing opportunity and this crisis is showing us the things in our culture that we need to bring light and consciousness and awareness to.”

Correction: Britta accidentally attributed "Wheel of Consent" to Betty Dodson in this episode and wanted to correct that to Betty Martin. More on Betty Martin's work here:
