The disease of addiction is treatable

Lorne Hildebrand - Addiction ConversationToday’s guest shares our passion, our desire, and our commitment to better treatment norms and outcomes for all people and families suffering from the effects of the disease of addiction.

Today’s guest, Lorne Hildebrand, is Executive Director of Edgewood Treatment Facility in Vancouver Island, Canada. 

Our guest passionately and enthusiastically declares “the disease of addiction is treatable” and how it can be accomplished. He shares a proven, conventional and documented approach – though it is not as easy or simple as any of us would wish it to be. Lorne brings a refreshingly direct and honest conversation to the issue of addiction in our society, including the legal, medical, societal, political, educational and personal obstacles to obtaining and sustaining a proper treatment regimen.

There is nothing better that an authentic intellectual discussion about addiction – today’s Addiction Conversation delivers in a wonderful way!
