Opiate Addiction: A Holistic Approach

Opiate Addiction: A Holistic Approach

This video is a retelling of a lecture I gave last year at Herbstalk in Boston focusing on holistic modalities that could be used to treat opiate/heroin addiction.

In the United States, it is estimated that there are 25 million people that need treatment for an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of those people seek treatment.
