Nick shares his story as the disease of addiction started to control his life. He shares how his dad found him overdosed and visited several inpatient and outpatient treatment facilities. Nick tells how he always struggled with authority and others telling him what to do. Finally, he realized that drugs were telling him what to do and were exerting authority and he knew he needed to quit.
After 30 days in a treatment facility, he moved to Hastings and lived in one of Revive’s Unity Houses. Through Revive, a foundation was built in Nick’s life that helped him overcome the addiction. He speaks about a relapse, as well as finding his way back to clean living again.
