Maté’s approach to addiction focuses on the trauma his patients have suffered and looks to address this in their recovery, with special regard to indigenous populations around the world.
“God, today help me set aside everything I think I know about You, everything I think I know about myself, everything I think I know about others, and everything I think I know about my own recovery so I may have an open mind and a new experience with all these things. Please help me see the truth.”

Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect, and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, announced a new study showing a continued rise in opioid affected births. Researchers examined trends in pregnant women diagnosed with opioid use disorder (OUD) and infants born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). The study,published in JAMA found that mothers with opioid-related diagnoses documented at delivery increased by 131% from 2010-2017, and infants born with NAS increased by 82% over the same period. These increases were seen in nearly every State and all demographic groups with rural, white, and Medicaid populations continuing to have the highest rates. In addition, the study found plateaus in opioid diagnoses in New England States suggesting that progress is being made in the region.
