A renowned speaker and best-selling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics, from addiction to mind-body wellness. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own experiences to present a broad perspective that empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them. He offers insight and hope for everyone - service providers, health care providers, educators, recovery community members and anyone interested in mind-body wellness.
