Within months of his first go around with Vikes he knew he needed more.  Later a shady Doc gave him a prescription for 240 Norco a month and he managed to use that in two weeks.  He knew he was out of control and it went on for another seven years.  He graduated to oxy somewhere in that time span and had to hustle to manage enough of it to avoid getting sick at $80 a pill.  Stealing, “borrowing” from friends and hocking valuables became a way of life.  He needed to get off the merry-go-round and promised himself every day for the last three years he used that the pills he took that day would be his last.   Join us this Sunday to talk to Dan about how he finally got to his last pill.
