Walking the Walk –
Sept. 13, 2018 – That addiction, however, reached its nadir when Ryan overdosed behind the wheel and nearly left four people dead. Sent to prison, he began to seek answers — and sobriety. It’s a story that encompasses his own son’s overdose death — caused, in part, by Ryan’s addiction and low points that included the two of them, father and son, doing heroin together. Now, Ryan seeks to pull others away from addiction, offering hope amidst the darkness and a hand to those nearing their own tragedies. “Systems of Care wants to raise awareness of the opioid epidemic and offer the community valuable information. Ryan’s talk will be of interest and value to concerned citizens and the general public,” notes a media release about the event.
