What do you think when you hear the word “Addict” or “Alcoholic”? Do you think up words such as “Drunk”? Or “Junkie”? Or even “Homeless, Lower Class, or Bad upbringing? Well I’m here to tell you this: Alcoholism and Drug Addiction affect ALL social classes, ALL races, ALL walks of life.

Millionaire Benjamin Chen is living proof that no one is invincible to the consequences of this disease known as addiction. Mr. Chen destroyed his $750,000 Porsche Mirage GT supercar while driving high on drugs through the abandoned streets of downtown Manhattan, New York on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, smashing into a van of bystanders and hitting multiple parked cars. He tried to drive away, but luckily didn’t make it very far. All this, under the influence of drugs. I’m sure that even if you haven’t destroyed a three-quarter million dollar car, if you are suffering or have suffered addiction, or know someone who has: You or someone you know has lost things in their life due to their addiction or alcoholism.

I personally have never had much, but have managed to lose everything that I did have while in my active alcoholism. Several arrests, loss of jobs, vehicles, relationships, a house, and more. I have been in multiple recovery / sober living facilities, drug and alcohol classes, anger management, jail, and so on. I am lucky not to be a statistic at this point. More than 67,300 Americans died from drug-involved overdose in 2018, including illicit drugs and prescription opioids. Not to mention over 80,000 alcohol-related deaths each year in the U.S. “Regular” people like you and me, homeless populations, even celebrities and CEOs. So whatever walk of life you live, if you’ve hit rock bottom before, you should know there are solutions. What I want to mention today is Sober on Demand: A New Alternative in Alcohol Addiction Recovery.
