Mike’s story on our website. www.naabt.org/MIKE
Meet Mike. An average
middle-class American, raised
and living in the heartland. A
business owner, loving
husband, father and
grandfather, Mike was very
active in his family’s lives
until he hurt himself at work,
and slowly became addicted
to the painkillers his doctor
Mike’s story is a common
one, but unlike many similar
stories Mike has survived
addiction and has
successfully been able to keep
it in remission with a
plan and buprenorphine.
Mike shares his positive
message and gives hope to
people who think that
recovery always involves
long-term inpatient rehab.
Mike chose a treatment
option that allowed him to continue his life relatively uninterrupted.
