The details of a person’s addiction journey may vary from another’s, however, the path to recovery will often follow the same trajectory – they hit “rock bottom” followed by a pivotal moment of action.
On today’s The Adverse Effect, we meet 26-year-old recovered heroin addict turned entrepreneur, photographer, and filmmaker, Conor Miller.
With brutal honesty, Conor takes us through his harrowing journey from destruction, despair, and a life filled with drugs, crime, and alcohol, to his road to recovery filled with purpose.
Whilst his peers were going on to lead normal lives, Conor was graduating to more serious drugs, falling in and out of jail, and surviving alcohol-induced near-death experiences.
Listen as Conor talks through his lessons of toxic relationships, the power of unresolved trauma, and that it's okay to discover your own path to recovery.
Conor is now married with a baby boy. He runs a transportation company called ArdentX which specializes in the transportation of goods throughout America.
“I tried drugs intravenously for the first time at 17 ...by the time I was 21 I had been to jail 5 times.” — Conor Miller
“Recovery is not universal; it is different for everyone.” — Conor Miller
