Michael fought addiction for years and over came that addiction in 2009. Michael remained clean until 2017 when low self-esteem and a non-supportive relationship triggered a relapse. It started with pills and went on to larger things. HELP is out there, If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction please contact the National Hotline for drug abuse at 888-633-3239.
