Ep009: Tim Ryan – Recovering Heroin Addict, A&E’s “Dope Man,” and National Thought Leader on Opioid Epidemic
Six months after his release, tragedy struck. His son, Nick – for whom Tim had paved the way to use deadly drugs – died tragically from an overdose. Reaching beyond the devastation and heartbreak, Tim used Nick’s death as the inspiration to spread hope, believing that if even one addict or family could be spared the horrors of addiction, he would make a difference.
As a result, he founded A Man in Recovery Foundation, a nonprofit that helps anyone find treatment and recovery.
Today, Tim is the subject of the new A&E documentary, Dope Man, reaching millions. He has been a featured thought leader in numerous national media, including USA Today, Newsweek, Chicago Tribune, and “The Steve Harvey Show with Dr. Drew,” and dozens of nationally syndicated radio shows. He was an invited guest to the 2016 State of the Union Address. He is the author of the bestselling book, From Dope to Hope and the National Outreach Director for Transformations Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center.
Tim’s message is inspiring because he has walked the journey of addiction and recovery. He spreads hope and tools to those who need them most.
“If you’re going to do heroin you have two choices, you will get sober or you’re going to die. You might pass through jail in the interim, but those are your only two choices. End of discussion.” – Tim Ryan
