Show Notes

Matty, like several young people in their early twenties, didn’t miss an invite to drink, use, and party. 

 

However, Matty quickly learned that he was unable to stop the party high. So, the party turned to daily use, using at work, stealing to chase the high, which resulted in bouts of homelessness, emerging past trauma issues, sex work, mental health issues, and a suicide attempt.

 

His goal is to offer his story in hopes to help others.
