Addiction Recovery with Dr. Robb Kelly

by Oct 4, 2021

Targeting the mind rather than the matter.

Addiction is a very real disease, with a massive impact on our society. It’s so widespread that 1 in 5 Americans know someone who has overdosed on the substance they’re addicted to. It has to stop… the question is how?

Men disproportionately struggle with substance abuse, and that’s why I’m so passionate about finding an answer. Thanks to Dr. Robb Kelly, we may just have one. With TWO PhD.s in Psychology (one with a focus in behavioral science), Dr. Kelly has spent his life studying addiction and how to beat. 

Using himself as a case study, he built a theory of addiction: one that ties addiction to trauma rather than substance. In some cases, the substance itself IS highly-addictive, yet the will to quit is trapped behind trauma. 

Having recovered from his own life of addiction he was able to map the moment he broke its hold on his life: by digging in and unearthing the toxicity that had rooted itself in his life, he gained a foothold for recovery.
