1970-74: Matthias becomes heavily involved in activism against the Vietnam War. He attends many protests, and even marches the steps at Washington, DC. In '72-'73, he picks up and travels through Southeast Asia, recording with natives and aiding the Peace Corps. These recordings became the basis for the much loved album 'Havens'. At this point, his opiate addiction takes over. When he returns home after the resignation of Nixon in 1974, his son Adam convinces him to check into the Betty Ford clinic.
