Back To Where I Was Before Addiction


In Episode 35, Tim talks about his progression from pain medication to heroine, and his many years in active addiction. He speaks about finding his spiritual connection, making the choice to seek recovery, and about how he now feels like he has picked up where he left off before the addiction took hold.

American Addiction Centers (AAC) presents “Far From Finished,” a weekly podcast that shares the real-life stories of people who survived addiction to thrive in recovery. In Episode 35, Tim talks about how at the age of 38, he was prescribed pain medication due to a motorcycle accident. Eventually he began to take these pills just to function. His pill use transitioned into heroin abuse, and it started affecting his relationships and most significantly his work. A near work accident was his wake up call to get help. He now feels like he’s gone back five years, and picked up where he left off prior to addiction taking a hold of his life. He now lives a life where he has beautiful people in it and a job where he can provide emotional support to anyone that is in the same place as he was.
