UNPAUSE YOUR LIFE Podcast: with guest Tim Ryan, A&E’s “Dope Man”
Tim Ryan- Recovering Heroin Addict, A&E’s “Dope Man,” and National Thought Leader on Opioid Epidemic
“People don’t want to live in active addiction, they just don’t know how to put their damn hand up and ask for help.
A tireless advocate for long-term recovery, Tim Ryan is no stranger to addiction. Despite a successful business career, Tim found himself in the grips of heroin and, ultimately, was sentenced to seven years in prison for drug-related convictions. Tim got clean and sober behind bars.
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

NJ attorney, Justin Christodoro walked into a stranger’s home, wearing only a t-shirt and high heels, thinking he was in a house that was expecting him. I’m guessing the bag of ecstasy that was found in his car helped him think his one-man party was going to be a blast. This lawyer that specializes in DUI now finds himself with a court date of his own, on the other side of the law.
MDMA, also called ecstasy, or molly, is a synthetic, psychoactive drug, that acts as both a stimulant and a psychedelic. MDMA can create distortions of time and perception, acting on the neurons that produce serotonin, it can alter your mood, aggression, sexual activity and even sensitivity to pain.
If you or a loved one are using MDMA or abusing any other substances, please call us for help!

A New Jersey attorney nude from the waist down save for a pair of high heels strutted into a stranger’s Rutherford home and announced “I’m here,” police said.
Justin Christodoro, 39, of Hackensack, subsequently was arrested in neighboring Lyndhurst on Saturday after a resident returned home to find an unknown car with an unconscious man inside parked in his driveway, NorthJersey.com reports.
“It was occupied by a man sitting in the front passenger seat wearing only a black shirt and black high-heeled shoes,” Lyndhurst police Capt. John Valente told the website.

The Addictions Academy is Passionate about the Success of our Students! Cory Bataan is featured in LIHerald.
Owner of First Step Solutions and student of The Addictions Academy, Cory Bataan is using his experience with addiction and success in recovery, to not only help others, but to prevent his daughter Lexi, 15, from making the same mistakes that he did. Read on for an excerpt from the LIHerald.
“When you get hit by a train, it’s not the last car that kills you — it’s the first,” wrote Bellmore’s Cory Bataan, 45, in a blog post about his yearslong battle with addiction. “It was the same for me with drinking.”
What began with Bataan’s first drunken escapade as a teenager spiraled into roughly 20 years of alcohol and drug use that ended with Bataan kneeling in the snow outside of his house, wearing a T-shirt in below-freezing weather, and screaming when he discovered that he had run out of cocaine.
Now sober for 12 years, Bataan is a certified addiction recovery coach, and guides individuals through recovery with his company First Step Solutions. His blog piece, “The First Night,” as well its follow-up “The Last Night,” are published on the company’s blog.
“I’m open with everyone,” he said. “I think by speaking about it . . . it gives people an outlet to come and talk to me or go out and seek help about it.”
