Today I will be speaking with my equally charming and knowledgeable Guest, Evan Haines, about what he has coined ‘solving the Riddle of Addiction.’
He is co-founder of an innovative drug treatment program called ‘Alo House Recovery Centers’, formerly known as Acadia Malibu.
Evan grew up with addiction problems all around him, and for many years suffered from his own issues. He then embarked on a years-long recovery journey. And along the way, Evan became ‘obsessed,’ as he puts it, with solving ‘the riddle of addiction treatment.’ We will discuss both his and my journey, personally and professionally, in this area.

I am delighted that a true survivor, Actor, Author and TV Icon of 46 years, Todd Bridges, will be here on my show.
The discussion will include his book, ‘KILLING WILLIS: From Diff’rent Strokes to the Mean Streets to The Life I Always Wanted’ and his years on Diff’rent Strokes, Roots, The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, his appearance on OPRAH, the trauma and repercussions of his childhood molestation and abuse, drugs, criminal charges and being defended in court by Johnnie Cochran, his success in overcoming drug addiction… and his continuing career success that he enjoys today while headlining, hosting and performing in Las Vegas.
A powerful and empowering episode about survival & activism.
We will be discussing Rape Culture in America, Rape Crisis, Human Trafficking, sex crimes, and the work ahead of us to stop these either deadly or entirely life-altering epidemics.
Natasha and Rajiv will both provide us with information and some instruction on how to advocate and support others, and Natasha & I will tell our own personal stories of survival as well and guide others in coping with the surreal trauma response that is the aftermath of surviving rape.
