Joe’s story goes like most, He eventually ended back on opiates but now it was pills. He no longer couldn’t take the addiction cycle no more and flew to Florida to enter treatment before he landed himself in jail again. Joe’s journey in recovery as he explains, wasn’t one of a first time winner he flew back to Baltimore after being thrown out of treatment for what he says was, “I was just and angry man” but the seeds were planted because Joe could no longer use without thinking about recovery. Joe managed to live through his last use and make it back to south Florida what would become his last and final time in treatment. Joe has built an amazing life for himself through 12 step recovery.
