Episode #648: Originally aired 2/20/10 and 2/24/10: part 1 and part 2 of Citizen Radio's interview with Dr. Gabor Maté (http://www.drgabormate.com/).

Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1944, Gabor Maté emigrated to Canada with his family in 1957. Currently, he is the staff physician at the Portland Hotel, a residence and resource centre for the people of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Many of his patients suffer from mental illness, drug addiction and HIV, or all three.

Dr. Maté treats addicts at Insite, the only safe-injection site in North America, a center that Canada's Stephen Harper has attacked even after the British Columbia supreme court ruled in the facility's favor.

He is the author of four books: When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder. The third book, Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers, he co-authored with developmental psychologist Gordon Neufeld.

Most recently published is In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction.

Dr. Mate joins Citizen Radio in part 1 of this interview to discuss the War on Drugs, drug decriminalization, and addiction. In part 2, he discusses over-medicated Americans, Rush Limbaugh, Stephen Harper, alcohol VS. drugs, Ronald Reagan, Republican denial, "healthy anger," and his advice for addicts.
