In the Ted Talk below, Johann Hari shares his personal journey, one that took him around the world, where he surveyed novel perspectives of factors that can influence the development of addiction, and provides examples of how addiction can be treated. Hari discusses the need for humans to bond and the way in which this can lead to the development of addiction. He also offers alternative means for treating addiction, through compassion, love, and understanding.
