About Dr. Gabor Maté:
Dr. Maté, renowned addiction expert, calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, whether in ourselves or in others. Dr. Maté believes that the source of addictions is not to be found in genes but in the early childhood environment. In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction, his most recent best-selling book, draws on cutting-edge science and real-life stories to show that all addictions originate in trauma and emotional loss.

"I work in Columbus, Ohio with kids from public schools that have special needs. Last night I was invited to a special screening of CRACKED UP. It was brilliant and ever so poignant. Darrell said that he would of made the movie— just to save one life—my friend, this movie will save literally hundreds of thousands of lives! Through his personal story, the movie shows that too many people are misdiagnosed as suffering from mental illness, but in reality their ailment is mental trauma of childhood toxic stress. Darrell spoke from his heart with love and conviction, such deep flammable content that he selflessly shared, so as to save others from unnecessary pain and anguish. Darrell has rose with this movie to bring hope and love to the world! The stigma of mental injury was replaced with compassion, support and hope!"
