Ryan Brown talks about taking his life back after addiction had taken everything from him
Casey Scott and Dr. Matt Woolley are joined by Ryan Brown to talk about how Ryan’s perfectionist attitude throughout his time in high school helped him avoid experimentation with substances, spending two years in Hong Kong on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and checking the boxes of creating a happy and successful future for himself.
Then Ryan shares his introduction to substances after breaking his back while snowboarding, how his use of oxycontin began to become excessive, and his struggles with sobriety and addiction over the years.
Lastly, we dive into Ryan’s decision to finally seek permanent recovery after his addiction took away his kids and his wife, his experience with receiving so much support for his decision to seek help, and how he’s giving back to Utah’s recovery community.
