This week’s guest on Being Human has one of the most extraordinary life stories of anyone I’ve met. I give you Guy Felicella.
Guy grew up in a middle-class home but fell into addiction at a young age. He spent 30 years in the repeated cycle of gangs, addiction, treatment, and jail.
But a pivotal meeting with one of Canada’s most celebrated doctors changed the course of his life.
Guy is now nine years sober and in a stable relationship with three children, a remarkable turnaround.
We dive into how he was able to achieve such a remarkable recovery.

We talk:

  • 30 years of gang life
  • Meeting Gabor Mate
  • The trauma therapy that changed everything
  • Practicing ‘doing kind
  • Confronting his abuser mother
