Why did I want to talk with Daniel Hearn on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? I am your host Jason LaChance, and I spoke with Daniel Hearn because we share a mutual passion for ending the stigma around addiction recovery and those suffering from mental health issues.  Daniel is an active member of the addiction recovery community and a loud voice to end the stigma so that no one thinks they have to suffer in silence. The Hard Knox Talks team prides itself in raising awareness around Substance Use Disorders and Mental Illness. They have found that recognizing the unmanageability of our thoughts and actions is often the first step toward recovery.   The lived experience brought them to this point. Daniel Hearn has himself been walking the road to recovery for several years. His vision is to help those who would decide to walk that path if the resources were available. That's why they're here. To give voice to those silenced by stigma—expected to act appropriately while in the grips of insanity. They are here to help those who are lost as we once were, to grow as we are, and to show the world that the lie is dead. We do recover.  This is Daniel Hearn in his own words on Knockin' Doorz Down.

Kalan Kellerhals | From Strict Religious Upbringing To Opioid and Heroine Addiction, To Recovery & Green Thumb Naturals

Why did I want to talk with Kalan Kellerhals on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? I am your host Jason LaChance, and I spoke with Kalan because I was fascinated with his recovery path and the depths his addiction took him. We discuss his strict religious upbringing, how he felt sheltered and how the path that he was told to walk didn't leave him with the purpose he was told it would fulfill.  With a familiar story of feeling like an outsider that leads him to the depths of despair in his full-blown opioid and heroin addiction to meeting his wife and finding a recovery path that has taken him to a life of purpose.  Kalan's path is nonconventional, and not for everyone, but I wanted to speak with someone who took a nontraditional approach to recovery. We also talk about how the musician Jelly Roll has greatly inspired him.  Kalan and his wife started Green Thumb Naturals. He say's, "More than likely I'm a lot like you…I have chronic pain as well as PTSD and severe anxiety. My doctors had me on a steady regimen of narcotic opioids and benzodiazepines to cope with the severe pain and anxiety."  Although these drugs relieved physical pain, they left him depressed, lethargic, and always wanting more…Because the pain never truly went away. So, he started taking more. The more he took, the worse his depression and outlook on life became. He remembers thinking some horrible thoughts in those times of hopelessness and anguish. He recalls weeping for hours and crying out to his wife asking “Why does it have to be like this?” or “Things are never gonna get better!” It was in those hours of despair that  Kalan decided he wanted to take his life back. He swapped his prescription meds for some CBD capsules and noticed nearly immediate pain relief. Not only did his pain levels change, but his outlook on life began to change in drastic ways. Not only did CBD help him step away from narcotic pharmaceuticals, but it also helped him quit drinking. This is when Greenthumb Naturals was born, with a desire to provide their products at an affordable price to those seeking the same relief and growth that he found. Kalan says, "we truly want to help people, and our customers can feel that love. We have a huge heart for our veterans, and donate to many vets each month at our local veteran's meeting – it's the highlight of my month! We are also proud to be helping many cancer patients with the side effects of treatment or with the pain and nausea that comes with the disease. To do what I'm doing for a living is truly a dream come true. Believe me, when I say – we're just getting started!" This is Kalan KellerHals in his own words on Knockin' Doorz Down.

I am your host Jason LaChance, and I spoke with Denny because in 1999, five years after his last drink and drug use, Wilson received his Priesthood Ordination and was installed in the Office of Elder two years later in 2001. Denny is the Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer of F I Community Housing, Inc., an Ohio Non-Profit Corporation that provided Mental Health, Alcohol & Other drugs, Reentry, and Recovery Support Services to individuals and families throughout Ohio from 1995-2019.

F I Community Housing was recently recognized as The Best of Akron, (Non-Profit category) and awarded the Best Original Story by the Greater Akron Chamber of Commerce in 2019. Denny developed and trains a nationally-recognized curriculum teaching the steps to successfully own and operate Recovery Housing, and designs programs for other providers and state agencies to operate from a peer-based model of recovery.

In October 2010, Denny was directly responsible for helping to define the roles and responsibilities of a Peer Supporter, and Ohio's definition of Recovery. Wilson also lobbied to ensure this new evidence-based practice and Ohio-certified service was reimbursable through Medicaid. By providing powerful personal insight into recovery, from a provider and person in long-term recovery, Wilson has helped develop Recovery Support Service Guidelines and Standards for Ohio and other states and opened the very first Peer Oriented-Peer Operated Recovery Community Center in the state. Wilson served as a founding member and Vice-President of Ohio Recovery Housing, an Ohio affiliate of NARR, (the National Alliance of Recovery Housing), and has helped more than 100 individuals and organizations successfully start and maintain recovery residences throughout the country.

Why did I want to talk with Jewels on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? I am your host Jason LaChance, and I spoke with Jewels because I was absolutely interested in her sobriety journey and why she wrote her book 'The Making Of A Woman'. Trigger warning, if you are in recovery for sex and love addiction this may be a conversation that challenges your sobriety. I personally found Jewels' book, fascinating and it led to asking myself many introspective questions about trauma, boundaries, sexual expression, and contribution to the recovery community. THE MAKING OF A WOMAN is the compelling autobiography of a dynamic female who refused to bow down to the circumstances of her birth. With a prevailing sense of self and survival, Jewels fought a hardscrabble war against the forces and people that populated her life in a way that often crushes others. Jewels is an award-winning author, speaker, and bodybuilder and hope to inspire others to push forward no matter the challenges. After enduring an abusive childhood, Jewels decided to use her earlier trauma to enter recovery, sexually liberate herself, and enter the competitive world of bodybuilding. At age 49, Jewels placed 3rd at the NPC North American Championships in 2021. Jewels has appeared on numerous media outlets to discuss a variety of important topics from her memoir including childhood trauma, sexual abuse, alcoholism, shame, LGBTQ, and alternate lifestyles.

Nick Jonsson | Finding Hope In Addiction Recovery, Isolation, Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

Why did I want to talk with Nick Jonsson on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? Nick is a top-level executive, one would say an overachiever. Like many Nick had some issues with his parents, mainly his father. After making the bold move to leave his home country of Sweden Nick began to feel isolated. Now Nick has become an advocate in battling addiction, depression, and anxiety, he is on a mission to help not only executives who are suffering from the same issues he has but anyone that is willing to raise their hand and ask for help. Nick's book Executive Loneliness: The 5 Pathways To Overcoming Isolation, Stress, Anxiety, and Depression in the Modern Bussiness World caught my attention. Nick knows executive depression, anxiety, and isolation – and the substance abuse, family breakdowns, poor physical health, self-harm, and suicide that can all too frequently result – and these major issues have been around long before most of us had even heard the word “coronavirus”. Nick knows this for a fact because three years ago, he went through a severe breakdown. At the time, he was performing very well in his career and had recently been placed in Singapore by his company. Over the previous decade, however, he had been unexpectedly laid off from senior roles working in Indonesia and Vietnam. He couldn't shake the paranoia that no matter how good his performance was, he could be retrenched at any moment. Nick lived on the edge – and drinking took the edge off. When Nick first moved to Singapore, he was all alone in a foreign country, so he sought solace in alcohol and the superficial social circle of his local bar. He stopped exercising and gained 20kg within a few months of arriving in the country. It wasn't the incredible food that did it – no, it was the booze. Drinking heavily at the end of most days was, to his mind, a reward and a form of therapy, but it only left him feeling more imbalanced, lonely, and disconnected. Psychosomatic disorders and an unhealthy lifestyle began to affect Nick physically. Then the suicide of a close friend, when Nick was in the early stages of my recovery, came as a real shock. No one knew his friend was feeling such despair. He suffered in silence, as so many high-powered executives do (especially men). Nick's friend hadn't told anyone about his depression or dark thoughts – and that was a terrible wake-up call for Nick. It spurred Nick to speak out about the dangers of depression and anxiety publically, to go on the radio and do keynote talks, to write articles about these issues, and hopefully, save lives. Nick was encouraged by his friend's brother, who told him, “Scream it out loud!” The hope was to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. This led Nick to write his book Executive Loneliness. In the book, Nick details each of these five steps: Taking Stock, Asking for Help, Getting Healthy, Nurturing Healthy Relationships, and Finding Your Purpose In the chapters dedicated to each of the steps, Nick takes you through his own recovery journey, providing you with deeply personal insights and perspective—as well as practical, actionable advice.

Why did I want to talk with Melissa Bright on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? Melissa is a professional self-esteem coach and is the award-winning host of The Bright Side Of Life podcast. She struggled with self-worth, not loving herself fully, looking at the world with limiting beliefs, living by someone else's standards, being a perfectionist, being a people pleaser, self-sabotaging, seeking outside validation, lacking self-confidence, and not practicing a lot of self-care. Much of this stemmed from her childhood, in which her parents divorced, her dad wasn't present and her mother struggled with sobriety. After losing her Mom at the age of 25, she would spend the next ten years not processing the trauma, losing self-confidence along the way, and feeling alone in her struggles. This all came to a head in 2020 when the whole world was hurting, Melissa decided to turn her pain into her purpose and start healing. Simultaneously while starting therapy, she started thinking about her true purpose in life. She looked out into the world and saw other people hurting as well, and she wanted to help. Now she puts the joy back into people's hearts through her podcast, The Bright Side of Life, where she talks to people that have successfully navigated their way back to joy and happiness despite their struggles, pain, and grief. All those things she struggled with kept her from lots of things: goals, a great relationship with her boyfriend, a great relationship with herself, and living as her true self. She has done the work to say, "I am now in a completely different place and I no longer struggle with those things. I know who I am, where I am going, what I want to accomplish, and what I have to offer." Now she helps others do the same. This is Melissa Bright in her own words on Knockin' Doors Down.

Kein deutscher Schauspieler hat seit Beginn der Statistiken mehr Besucher in die deutschen Kinos gelockt als Til Schweiger. Rund siebzig Millionen Menschen sahen bislang seine Filmhits wie „Knockin' on Heaven's Door“, „Keinohrhasen“, oder „Honig im Kopf“. Aber auch in Hollywood-Produktionen wie Quentin Tarantinos „Inglourious Basterds“ war er in seiner inzwischen mehr als 30 Jahre umspannenden Karriere zu sehen. Jetzt läuft mit „Lieber Kurt“ sein jüngstes Werk in den deutschen Kinos an. In der von ihm inszenierten und produzierten Tragikomödie nach dem Erfolgsroman von Sarah Kuttner, spielt er einen Vater, der am Unfalltod seines sechsjährigen Sohnes zu zerbrechen droht. Ich spreche mit Til Schweiger über seinen Umgang mit Trauer, die Kunst des Loslassens, Selbstironie, seinen anstehenden 60. Geburtstag und darüber, warum er sich trotz seines reiferen Alters oft immer noch genau so naiv und lebenslustig wie mit Anfang 20 fühlt. Wir sprechen über die Endlichkeit des Lebens, extrem herausfordernde Zeiten für das deutsche Kino nach Corona, Oliver Pocher und seine große Urangst, dass eines seiner vier Kinder vor ihm sterben könnte. Wenn du wissen möchtest, wie Til Schweiger durch seinen Körper immer wieder an das Älter werden erinnert wird, warum er bis heute um jede Beerdigung einen großen Bogen macht und er am liebsten auch noch im Alter von über 90 Jahren Filme drehen möchte, dann ist diese Episode für dich. Ich wünsche dir gute und inspirierende Unterhaltung mit Til Schweiger!

This is Crue Cast, a podcast about the most infamous band in rock history, Motley Crue hosted by Jason LaChance. This episode I talk with fellow Crue Head and Motley Crue stage clothing designer Tod Junker. Tod and I dig into not only how he came to design stage clothing for the different members of Motley Crue, including the current clothing Vince Neil is wearing on the stadium tour but how his career began with a chance meeting. We also talk about his career as a musician including stories of famed producer Rick Ruben and finding sobriety. He's also designed stage clothing for Steven Tyler, and nameless other performing artists. Junker Designs est. 2001 started with stuff Tod dived outta dumpsters, everything is made with grubby little paws. Tod has mutated, overdyed, rusted, painted, buried, or bled on every piece. The clothes are all one of a kind, made from denim, leather, whatever he can find in the dirty streets of Los Angeles. Wear It Hard. Wear It Loud. Tod was born at St Vincents in Manhattan and grew up in Houston, Texas on a steady diet of Ultraman, horror movies, war films, and Star Wars. Tod spent a lot of time drawing and exploring the creek by his house. At around the age of 8, he started getting in trouble in school for drawing on all his papers and desk. In high school Tod was getting into trouble for wearing biker boots and painting on his clothes, so he quit and started playing in punk rock bands. During that time, Tod started sewing more and putting the legs of jeans on his jackets for arms, drawing, hand painting, silk-screening, and dying all his clothes. Tod continued to mutilate clothes when he moved to LA in 2000. He started to experiment with aging processes, and patternmaking. He made a vest at a friend's house, which found its way to Lenny Kravitz who bought it, and that's how it all started.

We also openly discuss the medications that we've used to combat our mental health struggles.    Deep down Tim has fought an internal battle that he didn't figure out until it was almost too late. Tim finally learned something was off mentally & wanted the pain to go away, forever. On May 5th, 2019, Tim attempted to take his own life, but fortunately enough, he did not succeed in his plan. After that, he knew it was time to get professional help. After a long battle going through doctors, multiple therapists, & dealing with the mental healthcare system, Tim finally got some answers. Tim was officially diagnosed with general anxiety, ADHD, and Bipolar II / Manic Depression. Feeling ashamed at first, and with the help of friends & family, Tim came to terms with his disorder. Since then he wanted to help as many people as he could that also suffered alone with mental health issues. Hence the creation of 20TIMinutes, a podcast that focuses on mental health through the help of humor, insight & personal stories Now facing his challenges head-on and an advocate to openly discuss issues of mental health Tim has become an inspiration to others.

Matt Sorum is a Grammy-winning musician whose skills at the drum kit have earned him induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and helped to define the soundtrack to the City of Angels: from the propulsive wail of The Cult, to the wild excess of Guns N' Roses and the bellicose grit of Velvet Revolver. His reputation as a musician's musician has placed him squarely at the center of Hollywood's A-list community of artists. From Camp Freddy to Kings of Chaos, his side-projects have drawn a staggering number of fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers — from Alice Cooper, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry (Aerosmith), to Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Robin Zander (Cheap Trick) and Brian May (Queen). The Long Beach native and his wife, Ace Harper, recently became parents to a daughter, Lou Ellington Sorum. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Here's my guest, Matt Gandham after math treatment coming back on the pod, how's it going? My brother, It's going pretty good, man. It's a beautiful, beautiful day. Of Course, Matt, this second time here on the pod, if you want to hear Matt's story, go back through the archives. I mean just you're one of those people. The reason I want to talk to you again, cuz death was, was imminent. But, but now where I'm like really actively working my sobriety because it's doing a pretty guy, good job. The first time we met, but I got that arrogant streak in me. Like I'm okay. And, and I ended up falling off. So it's almost 17 months ago. I really wanna dig in with you on, on signs of substance abuse, cuz you were young when you were hitting it, you know, maybe it helped the listener see for a significant other that, Hey, these are some warnings, man. These are the things that pop up. Yeah. So one of the, I, I mean for me, a lot of it started with like behaviors in class, class, clown trying to get attention, you know, the insecurities and stuff that, that I had inside the fear of acceptance, the fear that people don't like me, that I would do over the top things to try to gain, you know, whether it was laugh, smiling on, you know, just something I was trying to, to gain from a young age, getting in trouble, you know, fighting there. There were just a lot of like, you know, certain behaviors even before I picked up a drug that, that you know, that you can spot for like a kid it's a little harder for like relationships because I was like so fucked up most of my youth that like, you know, I think when I was getting high, I mean, I don't know I was getting girls that, that didn't get high to drive me to do stickups and I, I don't know I was in, I was in some, in some shit when I was using. Yeah. But, but the obsession and the compulsiveness of, of a child, which like as a parent now, like I see in my kids, I see an electronics, you know, like you take your phone or, or a tablet away from a child and they have like a meltdown. It's like taking a bag of dope away from me. Like I'm gonna flip out, you know, but that's what it was like for like, I would do things to, to the max, you know? Sure. When I was playing sports, it was like, I was the last kid to leave the court after playing all night baseball, you know, I throw, I throw a ball into my arm was throbbing because I wanted to get better. And I wanted to be the best in like that competition, you know, just to be better than the next person to be the player on whatever team I was on. And I would do everything like over the top. And then I gravitated towards like the trouble makers, you know, and then to be accepted by trouble makers, you have to cause trouble. You know? So I, I was getting suspended in school in fifth grade. I was getting, you know, I don't know. I, I did a bunch of nonsense when I was real young. Like I was like a terrorist child. Like I feel awful cuz like it, it wasn't, you know, it wasn't how my parents really raised me. I mean, they both worked. My father left my mother when I was young, but they were both like working class. So like I kind of, you know, would cause trouble on my walk to, and from school stealing from the corner store, you know, for like validation from, from the people around me that like, oh Matt's crazy, Matt will do crazy things or Right. You know, there was a time I was hanging out with all the kids and they wanted to smoke. They wanted cigarettes and they didn't have any. So I said, alright, watch, I'll go steal smokes from this corner store. And they had like a hot dog stand to the side. So I asked the guy for a hot dog. And when he went to go make it, I ran around the corner, took two cottons of cigarettes and was booting down the streets. I didn't even smoke at the time just to say that I did it to like be accepted or whatever. Like the, the, you know, just doing dumb things. It remind me of line from it's fallout boy. Yeah. I like fallout, boy I'll own it. I don't care. I don't care what you think as long as it's about me. Yeah, exactly. And it really is. It's like we it's the truth. Yeah. We just wanna fucking build a rep of some kind. Okay. As long as it's this, this attention I'm getting attention and it it's so screw, it's funny you talk about relationships. Like I was a king of codependency, you know? Yeah. Any guy that maybe had some abandonment issues and wanted to nurture, So to mommy trying to fix me. Yeah. I'm gonna latch onto any broken, you know, broken pot of you and, and you're gonna need me through all that. Yeah. It's Yeah. I mean, it's, you know, it's that, that, that for that attention was what I did, you know, my, I went through full high school, so I was constantly getting kicked out. So I wore that like a badge of honor. Right. I sold drugs like, oh, I'm big, bad drug dealer. Like, no, I was getting high the whole time. And you know, being a little, you know, Guinea pig for whoever the kids in the neighborhood where we're like, Hey, go run these in school and bring us back the money. And I used to think I was like some big, bad guy stick up kid. I got stabbed. I used to wear that like a badge on like somebody almost killed me. Yeah. Like the rep and the longer in sobriety I get, the more I look back at like how delusional and you know, just like my way of thinking was so fucked back. Yeah. Back when I was using, when, you know, the streets, like whatever, I was like wrapped up in that I was just like a lost child. Like wish somebody grabbed me at that time and just shook me. Like, you don't need to try to impress other people. And the older I get, the less, I care about the opinion of others. Yep. And especially like putting your story out there and like, you know, like the poetry and, and some of the things that I've done in my recovery in my life, you gotta let go of, of people's opinions. I remember when I first started telling people, I'm gonna try to like chase poetry as a dream. And I come from a neighborhood where you don't, you know, Not that Shit. Yeah. They, you know, they're like, what, what are you talking about? I'm like, yeah, I'm gonna go do an open mic and I'm gonna go recite poetry. And they would laugh at, you know, like, oh, what Matt's, you know, Matt's on something, But it's kind of that, don't you think that, and I still struggle with this. This is one of the great reasons I wanted to talk to you is I have these things inside. And I, I was telling my girlfriend this, like, it, it, it feels like it wants to escape. And, and it's just, you know, I said, what, when I was drinking, I didn't give a fuck. I would, I would do whatever it was now. Like I have a conscience and I don't wanna be overbearing to people or whatever it is, but we kind of gotta embrace it. We are a little bit nutty. Yeah. And that's a good thing. And, and get the fuck after it. Like what, what do you want to do? You know, you look at a, at a guy, whether you, whatever you think of him or not Elon Musk, I wanna send rockets to space. Yeah. Okay. I'm gonna do it. You know, you kinda Gotta be well that's yeah. Everybody gave him shit. When he said that, thinking like, oh, who, you know, this guy's a lunatic, but he has the, the follow through to it, you know? Yeah. Yeah. And he's, I love Elon. I love everything that, that, that guy does. And it's the crazy people that, that actually change the world and make a difference. You know what I mean? Like you have to be some level of, of, you know, every genius has a touch of insanity. The knocking doors down book shares all the history and inspiration behind the Carlos Vera foundation and how it all started all proceeds from the book benefit, the Carlos Vera foundation's race to be drug free campaign. So what's that all about through the race to be drug free campaign. Carlos Vera foundation raises awareness about drug abuse, donates to drug free programs and brings drug free speakers into schools to educate youth the race to be drug free campaigns. Main program is the gloves, not drugs boxing program. This program is completely free for kids between the ages of eight and 17 to learn discipline, strength, respect, comradery, and the art of boxing. The program was created to keep kids off the streets out of gangs and away from drugs for more info and to get involved, check out Carlos Vera foundation.org. Yeah. I, and for me, you know, as a parent, as well, father daughter like yourself, how can I sit and tell my kids go after it, chase your dreams if I'm being a hypocrite and I'm not. Yeah. You know? Yeah. Like we gotta set that groundwork. No, I know. So like, I try to embrace for like my kids. My kids are like wicked creative, both of them. And which I hope is, is part of, you know, me being a poet, them seeing me perform. And like some of the things that poetry has brought to like my life, like being on the news and being able to travel and, and all like the treatment center and all the stuff that came after it, you know, my son has had a progression where he started doing comic books at a young age. So I was pushing him to, to draw comics and he was selling 'em for a dollar, a piece, you know? And then he moved to like animation on YouTube, draw in voiceovers, getting friends involved to like voice the characters and have storylines. And then we embraced it. And what's funny is now, so he just turned 14 years old and he he's like into rap, which like, I'm like a big rap fan. And I catch him every now and then free styling to himself. So now when we're walking the dogs, it's like, he goes a few lines. I go a few lines and we go back and forth, you know, because like, I feel like a lot of times people will tell you not to do something or not to chase your dreams, especially like at younger, you know, a young age, they want you boxed into like, you know, get a job, go to college, get a job, bury yourself in debt, outside the box, thinking isn't, isn't gonna get you anywhere where like, I wanna embrace the creativity. Cause I feel like modern day schools kind of destroy that passion that, you know, my, my daughter wants to be a singer, got a karaoke machine and, and try to push her to sing, but she got stage fright. So she has to, she gets too embarrassed around people. That's funny. See, I got, I got so SI fright. Like you put me on a stage. I'm fine. Yeah. Yep. Exactly. Prop me up there. I'm good. Like I'll do for, for 51 50 there MMA events. I'm good. Once I get in the ring and do the announcing, but then when I get off and people are like, man, you're really good. I'm like, you're like, thanks. I appreciate I don't inebriate myself anymore to have that ability, but I'm working on it. I'm fucking working on it. But that that's. And how cool is that? That you didn't listen to the naysayers and hear this son that your skill and these things that you wanted to do that your addiction hindered. You said, fuck it. I mean, I, I could have been dead. This isn't. Yeah. Kill me. And your opinion of me. Isn't gonna kill Me. Exactly. Well, it's also part of like recovery. What is recovery? It's stepping outside of your comfort zone, you know, and like public speaking, hopping in the ring and being in an announcer, doing poetry. Like these are all like unorthodox things that when you tell somebody their own fears, they're projecting on you and for how long did we sit in? Like that cage thinking that we weren't good enough, that we weren't capable of anything. We didn't deserve any better of a life. You know? Like I was on a suicide mission every day. Like I didn't wanna live cuz I didn't think I was worth it at, at one point. I didn't think anybody loved me because the wreckage that I caused and I don't like facing my wreckage. I don't like at that time when I was using and I I'd hurt my family I'd hurt a friend. I don't ever wanna face them. I wanna run, fight a flight. Let me take off cuz I don't wanna deal with the repercussions of what I caused. Yeah. You know, All to what, Whereas whereas now like looking at, at some of those outside the box things and the things that, that were really uncomfortable for me, especially in the early stages that I was able to grow, you know, into the, that where we're at right now, like I'm, you're in California right now. I'm in Massachusetts. We cross paths somehow. And we get to have like a conversation about recovery, about life parenting, a wide range of things that really stem from me getting clean. And then also me like from my side of it, when people were like, oh, what are you gonna do with poetry? It's a waste of time. Like, all right, I'm gonna prove you wrong. Just like when people told me I wasn't gonna stay clean or I'd be back in jail or I was gonna be a statistic. It's like, all right, that I'm gonna show you and I'm gonna, you know, exceed any expectations or the limits that you're gonna set. Well, and it's funny that you brought what you brought up about school. I think it was Gary Vanner check Gary V people in the, and he said, school's really good at building workers. It's not really good at building the creative entrepreneurial mind to go after that spirit and, and pursue what you wanna do. So it's good for the groundwork, but like, Hey parents, and it's nice to, to, to, I think one of the things we get outta recovery, we get a lot more switched on shit. We've seen both sides. We've seen a lot. And like one of the, one of the, the, I just did an interview that was like from, from addict to entrepreneur. And it asked about like some of the, the strengths from my drug use. Right. And how they've adapted into being a business owner and, and an entrepreneur. And a lot of it's like the risk, the risk taking risk versus reward, getting uncomfortable, taking chances. I mean, how, for me, so many times I was pushing the limits on, on doing whatever I had to do to get high that now I turn that same mentality into success. Yeah. You know what I mean? And for instance, I, I love sports. You see my man, Tom Brady behind me in his autograph, I got a bunch of autographs around my office, around my house. So I go to this like autograph shop and you know, I I'm pretty to myself when I'm, I don't really talk much to people, but I ended up getting into a conversation with the guy at the shop. Now he went to school to be an entrepreneur, huh. Right. Works for somebody doesn't own his own business. And he in turn tells me, as I shared with him that I I've take, you know, I've, I've owned businesses that have failed. I've take risks that I've failed. I haven't gotten discouraged, wiped the dart off, learned the lesson from it and moved on and used. What I learned into the next venture practical experience is, is what's made me a successful businessman. And he goes and tells me how school hurts him because he is so terrified to take a chance at anything because how much, you know, the, just the way they're educated to be an entrepreneur. Yeah. In a school setting, it's like, it just doesn't teach you compared to like, you know, the successes and failures that, that, that we might have faced. And I think our addiction, you know, you fallen 17 months ago gives you that drive of like, I can bounce back from anything. Like I got cleaned from shooting heroin and homelessness. There's nothing you can put in front of me that I don't think I'm gonna be able to get through. Oh, I fall short hair. Cool. Cut. Bait. Move on. Yeah. Like I'm not gonna, you know, I had a pizza shop. I had this great, you know, to talk about businesses. I had a, the last place I owned, 20% of it bought a couple of sober houses. So I was like, oh, the guys go through treatment. Then when they graduate treatment, they move to the sober house. And this pizza shop came on, you know, the market. I'm like, oh, it's a great idea. It's a get well job. Yeah. They can't really put drug addicts with cash on hand businesses. And no, I did it with the best intention at the time it ended up failing miserably. Cuz all I hired was like recovering addicts and you know, unfortunately Got wiped a bit. Huh? Yeah. You go to the register and be a little from time to time. It's like, you know, it was a bad, it was a bad business decision, but like I'm not gonna let it haunt me. It's it's a learning lesson. You know, I'll probably never get into the, the food industry ever Again, You know, but I'm willing to take the risk and you know, I took it on the chin and moved on, you know, Absolutely. This whole thing at life is a risk and we ain't gonna get out alive and we're not gonna get out with our stuff, you know? Yep.

So you got a skateboard and an autographed album and who's that behind you? So the skateboard is my brother, Brandon Nova. He's a good friend of mine, you know, recovery advocate, great speaker. He's like a brother to me, you know, I got one of his like personal skateboards, hung it up on the wall. He actually like de gave me a couple shoutouts and a couple of the books he wrote, which is like, you know, just incredible. Like it's, it's, it's cool that I get to cross paths with some like very interesting people and, and get to hear their story. And we come from like completely different backgrounds. But like the connection is, is, you know, the, the pain we went through, the struggle overcoming it and getting clean. It's like, you can really connect with just about, just about anybody. Yeah. You know what I mean? In that sense. And then Tom Brady is behind me, even though he don't play for the Patriots anymore. I still, you know, guy gave me 20 years of greatness as a, as a Boston sports fan. That's right. And then over my left shoulder as another really good friend of mine, SL he's a underground hip hop artist. He's an actor. He actually got clean in Cali. He was in gone baby, not gone, baby gone. Was it gone, baby, gone killing him softly. He's in like a bunch of movies played, played a cop in his last one, which was shocking. I forget the name. I forget the name on the spot of it. But he's like a, an extremely talented guy in all aspects. As an actor, as a musician, he's like a hot, cool underground rapper that Boston's not really known for hip hop. Sure. But like one of the things that I respect from him as an artist is that he tried to put other like up and coming hip hop cats on like an album, like the Boston project. He tried to give him shine cuz he has, you know, he has like a pretty far reach overseas up the east coast. And he's in recovery. Is that the dude that you were on his track or was it somebody else? Yeah, I, I have a track with him and another guy Rex. Okay. Where we we're talking about I'm my poem is of somebody who died where I'm talking like I'm from the other side. And they're talking about Rex was talking about a buddy of ours that passed away and saying, was talking about one of his friends, but I'm in a music video that he did called do what you love. And we did like a ton of charity work. Like I met him, not like before he was in recovery, just at like hiphop shows, cuz like I would do poetry events. I'd host hiphop, I'd perform it at some hiphop shows locally. And when he got clean, we crossed past and he, he knew like I was, you know, obviously big in the recovery community out here. And we, we did like a couple charity events. He had me host his, one of his album release parties. We worked together for a period of time and he actually just, he's in a partnership group that just opened up a detox and res Charles river recovery. Okay. Which is like 40, 30 minutes from where, where I am. So it's pretty cool to see the impact of like, you know, somebody, I look up to him a lot as like a writer, as an artist and you know, that's like, he's like one of my brothers, you know, big brother. Yeah. I'm gonna have to talk to that cat then, you know? Yeah, Yeah, no I'll connect you. But yeah, no Nova, I mean, that was cool cuz you know, talk to him twice first time like this via zoom and then to go, we actually at castle band with him and bam God, I hope bam is, is doing better man. But, but Nova it's great that he took that. He's got a real charisma to him and it's cool that he's turned that into a thing of, of helping others. I mean another guy become friends with Nova, got him into treatment, Tim loin. He's been here on the podcast and, and, and spoke with him on another one that, that you also appeared on. And it's just so cool how people that you know were so fucking selfish and are using that. We can't, we can't get outside of ourselves that now to be able to turn that around into something and like just, you had said this and I believe it was the, the conversation we had on the other podcasts that I do. And just like, I wake up and aim to be as service. Yeah. You know, that's what I got. Yeah. But that's like, you know, the charisma that he brings the inspiration. I remember when I was in high school and you'd bring in the dare speaker, it's like, they'd roll him in a wheelchair. And you'd talk about his 50 years of drink it. And we used to laugh like, oh, that'll never be me. That'll never be us. Well, what's cool. Nowadays is you have like, you know, inspirational speakers, like Nova going into schools, sharing with kids, trying to get them engaged. I know, you know, every time I try to talk to, to kids, you try to bring an element that like when I was in high school that they didn't have. Yeah. You know, everybody's falling asleep in the crowd to the guy that's not relatable that you can't connect with, but then you see somebody like Nova and he's like, yeah. You know, just breaking down all the achievements he has. And you know, you can check everything that he's done still hit bottom and was able to bounce back. I mean, it's, you know, it's extremely inspirational and you know, he's family to me. So yeah. I love Him. Good dude. Good dude. I hope, hope to see him again. At some point you said something earlier, interesting Matt, that you know about about that love and seeking love. Was it hard for you? This was a challenge. This was one of the last challenges through the AA steps. I'm a 12 step guy like you are, was I felt that presence of a higher power. I actually had a cool moment of spiritual awakening, but I still struggled in the aftermath that why would God love me? Do you find that with people that come into aftermath, that they struggle with that component? And did you struggle with that? Yeah. I mean, this, this, I have some severe like survivors, guilt survivors remorse that like I've lost a lot of my friends that I grew up with. And, and why, why was I like spared a sacrifice and still here when like, you know, other others were not like, what, what was the difference between me and them? That, that they ended up losing their life to this disease and yeah, somehow some way I'm still standing here. And then I also try to use that as like the purpose. Like I try to carry the message, carry their names and everything that I do as a way to like, you know, make sure that they didn't die in VA. You know, like a lot of times I feel like when we were, when we got into using there wasn't education, the way there is now, I'm not saying, you know, it doesn't matter. All the resources in the world could be out there. Addiction can still happen. But I feel like with Oxycontin in my generation and my group of friends in my area, it was like such a new wave. And it came over so fast spread like wildfire. And like, I mean, it's been taking people out and people haven't been able to get outta the grips of it. Yeah. You know, I'm fortunate that I got, I got clean at, at a young age, but then I I've watched so much death and destruction and like people that like genuinely wanted the help and, and they, they would have it. And they had the knowledge, we just lost a buddy of mine, Danny Mack, that like he could, he could recite the book and he was such an engaging powerful speaker. And like, unfortunately, you know, the disease got to him, you know, he didn't stopped taking care of himself, stopped probably doing the things that, that he needed to. And you know, the shit that's out there is no joke. I mean, it's something, you know, I always talk about when I was shooting heroin, I, I wanted to die every single night. I never feared that I was going to die. Right. With, with the joke that, that I used where nowadays, like people are terrified to use because you just don't, it's, it's just, it literally is killing people, you know, at such a rapid pace. Like it's, it's, it's insane. It's like absolute insanity. Well, You know, the, the fucking fentanyl sneaking into everything being split and cut and you know, I mean, we see what here, I don't know about there, but definitely with the pills, you know, people getting M 30 S and stuff and, and, you know, people are listening, maybe aren't in the drug recovery culture, like you and I are, but yeah, they're these, you know, getting these press pills, you know, someone's taking 'em man, cause some dude could be mixing it up in his fucking bath and, and oh, absolutely. Held a split. You get a hundred percent fentanyl you're gone. Yeah. I mean, we, another buddy, we lost that. When they went, went through his room, there was no needle, no syringe, no straw, no rolled up dollar bill, nothing. And I come to find out, he had popped one of those M 30 S that was a straight pressed fentanyl pill. And didn't make it, you know, like it's such a, a deadly lethal chemical component mixture, whatever that like, you know, is serious repercussions when you're using it. Yeah. You know, and it's like one of the most high break things about how, like we're seeing a lot more alcoholics and a lot of it's because there's not a lot of people that are making it out from, from using fentanyl. You know? I mean, it's really ravaging the country. I mean, every single year the overdose deaths have increased. It's the number one. Cause in deaths, in people from 18 to 35. Yeah. Like that's some serious, you know, that's a serious number right there. Yeah. You know, it's not, it's not car accidents. It's not, no, it's, It's overdose deaths is the leading cause for death in young adults. Yeah. Yeah. We've got a, A heartbreaking, A mental health issue that I, I don't have the solution to address. Yeah. But I think the more we get it out there that like, you know, talk about your problems and it's a good thing. It's a sign of strength, not weakness. Hopefully we can come across that. And you know, cause I don't know, other than people that care cuz our government ain't gonna do it For yeah. The government doesn't, doesn't give a shit. But I do think like my father and then to me, for, for an extent, when I was younger, we're taught to man up and not express feelings. Like my father only now in his, late in his sixties is starting to express himself a little bit softer than his entire life. But like as men, we're not told to talk about our problems, that it's a sign of weakness. One actually it's like a sign of strength that you're not holding onto it. You're not bottling it up that, you know, you can talk about having weak moments or feeling like, you know, being able to express whatever it is that you're going through. Yeah. You know, I think if we can continue that conversation of, of allowing us to be vulnerable, weak, and emotional at moments or whenever and pass that down to like our kids. So they're not scared of being like, Hey, you know, I'm feeling like this where you're gonna be shamed and told to man up, you know, don't cry, don't show your feelings. Like, you know, we need to raise, you know, kids that are better in tune with their emotions. Yeah. They don't have to seek that, that substance drinking or drug to kinda numb whatever emotion that they were dealing with the way, you know, I did when I was younger. Yeah. And for me fell in later and you know yeah. And when we to give context, we don't mean come home and show your emotion. Oh the day was fucked. And no, we, we may maybe come home to the significant other and hopefully you have a relationship environment, cuz this is something you should question. If you don't, if you're in the right place, you come home and just be man, I had a tough day at work. You know, the boss is grinding me. I felt like I was overachieving, whatever it is, you know, you know, man, a friend of mine is sick and you know, any of that kind of stuff It's yeah. Sad over it. Yeah. It's important. It's okay to go like man, I'm sad. My energy isn't there. It's okay to have these things. We don't mean be arranging Dick about it. No, no, But express it. Yeah. A healthy, we need to learn how to express these emotions and feelings in a healthy manner. Not outbursts. Yeah. And what, which is hard to learn what exactly that is, but you got, you gotta work it to figure it out. You know, It's, you know, everything's a process, nothing, you know, takes time, takes learning, finding the different skills on how to cope and deal with different things. Yeah. Which can be a motherfucker. Yeah. Definitely some challenges on, on the way to figuring some things out. I still haven't figured everything out. You know, do we, do we want to though? No, no right. To figure everything out, it'd be a boring life. What, what else are we living for? You know, there's gotta be some tweaks and, and things that we can work on. You know, I, I wanna ask cuz you've got some good longevity with, with new people that come into the program, do they get thrown off? Cuz I'm starting to get lately a lot of dudes, like what does this AA saying mean? What does this one mean? You know, as simple as one day at a time I broke it, broke it down for a dude in my perspective. Yeah. Do you have some of the newcomers kind of hitting you up about some of that stuff or the people in, in the aftermath? I mean sometimes, sometimes people, you know, they question why certain things of the way they are or certain approaches are or you know, they get overwhelmed when you start. Especially like with alcoholics that, that I've been seeing lately, like a lot of first, a second time in treatment, still struggling with the idea that they're an alcoholic and you know, they're like, I'm never gonna be able to drink ever again. And you're just like, nah, man, keep it in the day. You know, just, yeah, just make it through the day, one day at a time, you know, and you build on those little victories and then you achieve, you know, something more and don't try to look too far ahead because it's overwhelming. I gotta, I gotta P mine he's struggling, but his significant other doesn't want it, like hear it. It's this perspective of, oh, just stop, you'll be fine. And it's like, Oh, if it was only that easy, Right. How do you combat that stuff? I'm kind of seeking advice for him maybe to drop him this. I mean, sometimes you have to look at the relationship. A lot of our friendships and relationships are developed on that connection of drinking. Yeah. And then sometimes, you know, people grow a pot, friends grow a pot, significant others grow a pot. And maybe somebody has to take a look that if, if, if drinking has become such a problem and you're not necessarily getting that support, you know, if they're still, are they still actively drinking too and still partying, but expecting your friend to stop Or yeah. Yeah. I mean that, you know, if you're trying to stay sober and you come home to a girl that's still drinking, partying and being around that lifestyle, that's something that's really hard. It's not a very healthy environment. If you're trying to better your Life, it's a good path to fallen off real quick. Yeah. Like, I mean, imagine, you know, all it takes is one bad day, a fight with your boss and you come home and your girl's there drinking and you just, you know, you get a case of the buckets and you know, you just grab that bottle and, you know, washed away whatever time that you've gained, you know, it's really difficult and toxic settings like that. Yeah. Cause I, I, I think one of one thing that really was important to examine, and I know you went through it too, was realizing the snorting of other people, you know, that, that codependency, I mean, some of us just do and there's some people that that's all it is like, you wonder like, wow, her, her, that this man or woman was in this relationship. We recently had this in the news with two celebrities. Yeah. Seems like a terrible toxic place, but there's something about that process of the activation of flight or fight or flight mode and kicking our serotonin and dopamine. And we confuse all this horse shit with, with love and it ain't fucking love. It's just no, not at Alling people man. And I mean, some people like that, they were raised in chaos. Yeah. So being in chaos, chaotic situations like that is something that as sick as it sounds is like normal to some people like without that toxicity, you know, sometimes people can't be in the mundane relationship that like everything is going nice. They need to stir the pot, you know, drop a shirt on a pillow, you know? I mean, you know, who doesn't come home, you know, Hey, I need to spice things up, you know, let take a shit on somebody's pillow. It's fucking wow. It was a, it was a grumpy, Matt Was, it was the Dog. I forgot it was a gr it's a grumpy, a fucking, But that's, but that's the thing. Like we grow up a lot of times in like chaotic situations. Yeah. Like I've always, I've struggled significantly with love. Like I, I have never rarely seen like a healthy, normal relationship. And then I look back at my years of trying to, trying to date or figure out what is love and who I'm with. And like, all I see is the same cycle repeating itself. And you know, it stems a lot from like what we were raised in. And when you're raised in, you know, unhealthy relationships, like sometimes, you know, the abandonment issues kick in, you latch on, you know, as bad as it may be the fear of going out in the world and finding somebody else keeps you in situations that you're not happy in. And then, you know, that misery is, it's like a comforting misery that you're just, you know, you're attached to. And then that fear of separating. And then now you have to stand on your own and who are you as a person, if you're not with, you know, married to this girl or, or in a relationship with this guy? Like, who are you when you stand on your own too? You know, it, it's very difficult, especially when you put sick individuals, like all of us apart. And you're like, Hey, be, you know, do the American dream marriage, big house, white picket fence and, and raise healthy children, you know? Yeah. Oh, Doesn't always come, you know, out how the American dream has been portrayed to us since we were kids. Yeah. And there definitely is that thing, that fantasy mindset that is, I thrown out there that us addicts got a ditch. Cause we lived in so much of a fucking haz of a, a, a lack of reality for so damn long. So it's crazy, man. It's crazy. Matt, we're gonna finish up with some fun, random questions and leave you at the final words. Tell people how to hit you up and I'll include the links in the podcast description. Yeah. You can find me on Facebook, Matt, the poet on Instagram and Twitter at Matt G under school poet. The treatment center that I own is aftermath addiction treatment center on Twitter. It is aftermath at aftermath, TC on Instagram. It's at aftermath underscore treatment. Yeah. Look for the Phoenix. You know, I, we have a very good quality brand that, that pops and has some very sentimental meaning in the name and, and you know, Phoenix as a writer, I write a lot using the metaphor, rising out the ashes of an attic. Reborn is a Phoenix from the fire. Like I use, you know, those type of metaphors a lot. So having like the Phoenix is the logo or the treatment center was like, you know, it just like came to me, had to, had to put it up there. You know, I love it. This, this, this one. I can't even, I don't know that you can see that that's my, my pirate in a bird, but this was gonna be a Phoenix. But the design that the tattoo artist and I had, cause I got shit on my shoulder, on my left shoulder, wouldn't fit. So that'll be reserved for the right arm with Phoenix. Cause that, that gave me chills. I'm kind of with you on that with Man coming outta the ashes, you know, shitty situations as, as an addict or an alcoholic, you know, we're shedding that dead skin of, of our active use and reborn as a new person in sobriety, you know, the metaphor runs deep for, for what, what we do at aftermath. You know, Absolutely 51 50 is a lifestyle we believe in pushing yourself, finding your passion, knowing your dreams and working hard and always striving to make those dreams. Your reality. We believe life is too short to sit back and say, what if go after it, grab it and make it happen. Being 51 50 is committing to that long, hard road that road, you know, is going to be tough, but the most rewarding that's living the madness. That's 51 50.

Let's jump into those random questions. Yep. If you could have dinner with any one person alive or not, who would it be? Damn or not? Could I do both? Somebody's alive and somebody who's dead. All Right, go ahead. Throw a dinner party. I would love to sit down with Tupac. Yeah. Tupac's like my favorite writer and the emotion and all that comes with it. And then a person that's would probably like to have conversation on, on how he's been able to adapt to his circumstances coming from where he came from to get to where he is and evolve as an artist. So I think that would be a cool two cool conversations, even though Tupac, Get to break bread on this. Exactly. You're stranded on a deserted island. You got one movie and one music album with you. What are they? Hmm. Movie would be probably Goodwill hunting. I watch that whenever. And then for album would be it's doc and hell is hot. All right. That's funny. I posted something the other day on my story. I said where it was. Do you like apples? How about them? Apples. Yep. Yep. I love Goodwill, huh? No, I love that movie. I mean, what hap there's like a bunch that come to mind, like I'm a big Marvel fan and, and style wars. If I could get a whole collection, it probably would've went to one of them, but you know, I'm gonna rock with a classic I'm with you on star wars. One of my things, my previous sponsor, he goes, what did you love to do as a kid? And I'm like, ride, ride my bike, this and I go, I love to build Legos. And he goes, all right. And he sent me a gift card. So now I've got two bookshelves full of star wars and race. So hell yeah. How'd you like OB how'd you like OB one? OB won was fucking dope, man. Oh, was so sick. I loved it. The scene with Veda. I mean that turned, you know, that tugged on my hot strings, you know, they're two great actors and like, I wish we could get more even though I don't. You can't, you can't play anything else out between them two. I, yeah. I wonder cuz I've read some rumor about that. They were gonna do a second season, but I'm like, where do you from That? Why you can't have Vader in it like that is, I personally believe it's a perfect segue into a new hope and, and where they are at that point. I don't think you can do too much after that. You know, If you were in a star wars movie or TV show, would you play a Jedi or a isn't isn't it? Yeah, man. You know, I mean, peace loving happiness is the Jedi. And you know, I probably try to figure out some, you know, weird way to gain power and I don't know, sister just cooler. Yeah. You know, I love Vata. Veta is my favorite character and any movie, his whole arc is pretty dope. So I think I'm gonna have to rock with, with Seth on That one. And the OB one series made me like the episodes one through three Even more. Yeah. Yeah. No, definitely. It, it pulled me back in. Alright. You brought up Marvel. If you could have one superpower, what would it be So many of them to choose? Right. Probably fly. Yeah. They fly and be pretty dope. Just get where you want to go. Huh? Yeah. You know, don't gotta sit through TSA, go hop on the island. I'll go shoot down to Bo Bo. Oh dude, I'll go with you. If you can carry, That's just carry a couple people, you know, get like something to, to latch on. And we'll just, you know, we'll whip there real quick. Yeah. The, my girlfriend and I, we did a vision board and so for the vacation, I got the, the, the little huts over the water and Bo board. That'ss The spot I wanna Go before I die. I wanna make a trip out there because it looks so beautiful and peaceful and there's nothing. It's like, you have those little huts and you can just soak up, you know, just natural beauty, you know, peace, peace and quiet out there. At least that's the way it seems in pictures. Right. That's that's what they show on the reality TV Too. And real beautiful out there. Absolutely. Matt, thanks brother. If you got any words you wanna throw out to people, you know, through your experience, you know, floor is yours. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, anybody that's out there struggling, you know, keep fighting, never give up. We all fall down. Don't get discourage at yourself or beat yourself up. When, when we have little slips, very few people actually get it in their first time. But the worst part, you know, is when you beat yourself up, you don't end up making it back. So I play in like a men's basketball league and, and we have a kid on our team that fell off, got into a bad car accident, faces all messed up. And we were trying to talk him into like going into detox yesterday. And it's like, you can tell sometimes the burden and, and the shame just like drives you away. And you're just like, yeah, I'm gonna do it tomorrow. And then tomorrow comes and you don't do it. And then another day or next week or Monday, or, or on the first or whatever it is. And all of a sudden you're on like a five to six month run, creating even more wreckage where, you know, just put the bat down, stop beating yourself up, give yourself a chance, reach out to people that are out there asking for help. You know, I know it might not feel like it, but you deserve a far better life than it, you know, revolving. You're waking second from using, from drinking, from lion sheet and stealing. You don't have to live a life like that anymore. And you know, just give yourself a shot. You know, life is a hell of a lot better on this side of things. When we get to see things clearly be present in our kids' life, have a good support network, great friendships that aren't based off of your drinking buddies or who can get the best dope or Coke, or who has money, you know, and do the things that you love to do. You know, recovery's a lot about hitting meetings, building a network, you know, finding the supports in every way, but find the things that you love to do on top of that. You know, like sometimes people get caught up and it's just meetings and meetings and meetings. And like, you know, you get meeting, you get meetings out really quick. So find some of the things that you love. You know, I'm blessed that, you know, my son's into like comic books and style wars. So we go see those movies. I play basketball sports. You know, we get involved in a lot of like the recovery events out, out our way. So find things that you love to do hiking beach, you know, you still gotta live your life and enjoy it and be happy.

Why did Knockin' Doorz Down host Jason LaChance want to talk with Wil? Wil Prescher's story and memoir "This Is Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma" are gut-wrenching but inspiring as at 29 he is a warrior on a journey of healing from generational trauma and sexual abuse. Wil went through hell with an absent father and drug-addicted mother. Wil endured, more trauma being placed in the foster care system from age seven until he was almost 13. Bounced around in a broken system and moved from home to home all over the state of Texas. His unresolved trauma eventually to alcohol to escape as he was numb inside and as he says "I was able to feel something when I drank to excess."  At the age of twelve, Wil went to a foster home in Walnut Springs, Texas, with loving people who would eventually become his adoptive family. As Wil grew older, he developed a yearning to help individuals who have been in similar situations. He understood how navigating the foster system could be very challenging and that many were not as fortunate as he had been.    Wil has spent the last four years studying mental health and substance abuse issues while working with at-risk youth in multiple organizations. During this time, he realized the effects of music therapy on a person's soul and emotional well-being; he is continuing his education to fulfill his dream of becoming a therapist. He hopes to share his experiences with others to show that something good can come out of an unfortunate situation out of his control.    When he is not working or studying, Wil enjoys spending time with his family, who have adopted him. He also enjoys hiking and the outdoors. You can always find him jamming to the music of "Pink" with his two cats, and he still resides in Houston, Texas.  Wil Prescher has pursued his dream of being an author. His first book titled "This Is Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma," is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book versions featured on fine literary book sites.    This is Wil Prescher in his own words, on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast.

All rights reserved. #MikeDiamond #onedayatatime #wedorecover Why did Knockin' Doorz Down podcast host Jason LaChance want to talk with Mike? Mike Diamond has achieved a great deal externally, but it is the internal battles that he's confronted with the drive for mastery of self. With knowledge, purpose, and a sense of humor. Mike Diamond is an Author, Television Personality, Director, Life Coach, and Interventionist. Known for his work on the hit TV shows NY Ink and Bondi Ink Tattoo Crew, which is currently nominated for a Logie Award for Best Reality Series. Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Mike got off to a bit of a rough start. Battling undiagnosed dyslexia, he started using drugs and alcohol at age 12. At age 16, he was expelled from Aquinas College and finished at Melville H.S. Immediately after graduation, Mike moved to Sydney and enrolled at the Actors Center. He got a job at a local clothing store which, unbeknownst to him at the time, would change his life forever. Lady Luck was on Mike's side when a customer at the store handed him a Green Card Lottery ticket. Mike won a green card in 1997 and made the move to Miami. Shortly after his arrival, Mike landed a role on the CBS sitcom, Grapevine from Director David Frankel. After Grapevine, Mike moved to NYC, where he worked on various projects including as a guest star on Sex and the City. Mike wrote, created, and starred in a VH1 pilot with former STP and Velvet Revolver frontman, Scott Weiland. Splitting his time between NYC, Miami, and Los Angeles, Mike had regular gigs performing stand-up at Caroline's on Broadway and The Comedy Store. Mike was properly introduced into the tattoo world when he appeared on Miami Ink. He later became the store manager for his good friend, Ami James, at Wooster St and starred in Season 3 of NY Ink. Mike then headed back to his hometown where he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in Bondi Ink Tattoo Crew, based on Bondi Beach. Although Mike has had plenty of “highs” in his life, he has also had his “low” moments along the way. Mike has battled cocaine and alcohol addiction for the majority of his life. The defining moment came at the height of his career while shooting a TV show for VH1. To the outside world, Mike looked like he was living the dream but on the inside, Mike was spiritually bankrupt and miserable. He realized that if he didn't turn his life around, he was going to die. April 16, 2006, was the day Mike Diamond got sober. Since then, Mike has literally helped hundreds of people on the road to recovery. He is on beck and call to all his clients and friends, helping them through their life problems and battles with addiction. This is Mike Diamond in his own words, on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast.
