He now answers the SouthCoast hotline to help people who are looking for the same thing he was – freedom from active addiction and alcoholism. Ryan is trained in Meditation and is active in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous. He also speaks on H & I and detox center panels. “Getting others into recovery to build their new life gives me purpose.”
