PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Ryan's message is inspiring because he has walked the journey of addiction and recovery. He spreads hope and shares tools for those who need them most, and explains: Who are today's addicts and how do they get their hands on heroin, opiates, and other substances? He reveals the startling death rates amongst addicts-young and old alike and provides solutions to how the "pandemic of addiction" can be stopped in our cities, towns, and communities. In addition to facts about the opioid epidemic, Ryan weaves his personal story of heroin addiction, incarceration, and how he lost his son to a heroin overdose. Contrasting his own harrowing story are real-life examples of families and kids he has helped, through his foundation, to find a life that is free of addiction. This program is ideal for medical/mental health care providers and community groups.
