This week’s theme is HOPE represented by the Azalea flower NFT. With recovery advocate Aaron Marks, we explore the biological and emotional impact of substance use. This knowledge comes from his own 17 years in recovery. He asks a very simple question to make addiction clear: If you were very thirsty or hungry, what would you do to fix that?

He is a leader in the space as the Co-founder of Misfit Robots, an NFT project building out Mental Health as a Service in Web3, President of the Board at a non profit treatment center, the Chair of the Prevention and Education Subcommittee for the US Attorney’s Opioid Task Force, a public speaker, and fierce advocate for reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and substance use disorder.

To keep the lights on he works in blockchain/crypto payments as the Transaction Services Sales Director at Circle.
