Hard Wired for Addiction: The Impact of Internal Disconnection

Tamala Ridge offers a progressive and insightful perspective on addiction, delving into its roots in our biological wiring for survival and how it is often manipulated by external forces. She emphasizes that addiction extends beyond substances, highlighting an addiction to the emotional ‘come down’—the cycle of guilt, shame, and self-loathing following a high.

By understanding this cycle, she advocates for a transformative approach focusing on creating oxytocin through connection with oneself, others, nature, or spiritually. Her methodology challenges and inspires a rethink on addiction and discovers new pathways to recovery.
