From Opioid Addiction to Recovery: A Story of Self-Discovery

The feeling of emptiness and lack of fulfillment and that hug from dad- and I love you and I'm proud of you that I'm looking for- that I got from a pill or a line, or a drink or whatever.
Lance Orton's story is a powerful one, as he shares his experience with opioid addiction and the steps he took towards recovery on a recent episode of the Henry's Uncle podcast. Orton's addiction began with experimentation, but soon turned into a physical dependence on opioids that he couldn't break free from. Easy access to prescription pills from doctors only fueled his addiction, and he found himself spiraling out of control. The loneliness of addiction only made things worse, and he turned to more drugs and alcohol to numb the pain.
But Orton eventually found his way to recovery, and his story is a testament to the power of self-discovery and the holistic approach to recovery. He realized that he was looking for a father figure to love him, and that he needed to explore different aspects of his life to find fulfillment and happiness. This included looking at his fitness and health, quitting smoking, and eating right. He also found a support network of friends to exercise with, which helped him stay on track.
The opioid epidemic has affected countless people, and Orton's story sheds light on the importance of taking a holistic approach to recovery. It's not just about treating the symptoms of addiction, but about addressing the underlying issues and finding a sense of purpose and fulfillment in life. The Henry's Uncle podcast is a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about addiction and recovery, and Orton's story is a powerful reminder that there is hope for those struggling with addiction.
As Orton says, "The feeling of emptiness and lack of fulfillment and that hug from dad- and I love you and I'm proud of you that I'm looking for- that I got from a pill or a line, or a drink or whatever." Recovery is a lifelong journey, but with the right mindset and support, it is possible to overcome addiction and find a new sense of purpose and fulfillment in life.
