Jerry, his brother and Mom spent a good deal of their life on the run from a violent Father; moving from city to city, changing names, schools, friends and keeping secrets. He desperately needed a sense of belonging and found drugs, alcohol and instant friends at age 14. His use was way short of normal right out of the gate. By age 16 he had gone to his first AA meetings. He left in a hurry and didn't get back for close to twenty years. In between were numerous disastrous relationships, experimentation with just about everything, crushing depression and a never ending search for that elusive sense of belonging. After a number of attempts at sobriety he finally found his real home. Join us this week to hear Jerry's story.
