Johann Hari’s TED TALK, “Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong” was among information referred to CCC&Y by Kevin Campbell in response to our request for support furthering our prevention/ trauma-informed work. This 14 minute video helps set the stage to think about substance abuse prevention differently, especially around, justice issues and the impacts of thriving environments and having connections.

Campbell referred to the information during his recent “Self-Healing Communities” presentation held Oct. 29 in Flagstaff.

Key sections of this video for CCC&Y Executive Director, Virginia Watahomigie, were the 4 minute, 30 second mark where research shows rat environments play a role in substance use and again at the 7 minute and 30 second where decriminalization in Portugal and support of community connections showed success.
