Dave was not a teenager flirting with immaturity and peer pressure. He was a 30-something father of two when he tried crack cocaine for the first time. Why would any self-respecting family man make such a decision?

Drug and alcohol addictions’ complexities and the mindset that comes with them is apparent in Dave’s emotional telling of his story. However, Dave is not choking-up over regret. His tears are for the found hope and second chances he received from a special boss, his family, and his God.

Experience a sneak-peek into addiction, the heart of a man in recovery, and what can happen when hopelessness meets love. This show will be available on September 21.
