This week we speak with Peter Thorburn about addiction, what it is, why people become addicts, and how we can help. We examine how our current system works, and imagine what it would look like to treat addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal one. Pete brings a wealth of knowledge to the discussion, combining both lived experience, academic study, and professional expertise. We hope you enjoy the show!
