This song ↓ has always been great to me, in that it represents the " Need to be Needed "
I think this person is very much on right track, as he is trying to bring a " tribe of guys " together to bond in a community way

These are quite stunning case studies. I was aware that a big component of addiction was inside us and not the chemicals, but I didn’t expect to be this strong.
This gives us an insight that goes much deeper than the need to understand addicts. Professor Peter Cohen argues that human beings have a deep need to bond and form connections. It’s how we get our satisfaction. If we can’t connect with each other, we will connect with anything we can find — the whirr of a roulette wheel or the prick of a syringe. He says we should stop talking about ‘addiction’ altogether, and instead call it ‘bonding.’ A heroin addict has bonded with heroin because she couldn’t bond as fully with anything else.
