    The Roots of Addiction: Nico’s journey into the world of substance abuse began at an early age, starting with cannabis, and progressively escalating to opiates and heroin.

    BEST MOMENTS


    “I used substances to feel balanced, to get through the day.”
    “At 22, I was living out of my truck, pushing boundaries I never thought I'd cross.”
    “I realized, it’s not just about stopping the substance; it’s about changing how you see yourself.”
    “Helping others became my new addiction – a healthy one that brought real freedom.”

    ABOUT THE GUEST 

    Nico Morales was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was an athlete, opiate user, and over drank alcohol. Now is an author, graduate, and business owner. Nico had adverse childhood experiences that he repressed, this mental unrest led to an exploration of substances, eventually propelling him into opiate use disorder. By twenty-two, Nico was living out of his truck and spent most of his time finding odd, sometimes illegal ways to make money to support his drug habit. After seeing others close to him pass from overdoses and recounting the times he came near death he recognized there was a reason he was still living. He put down the needle and unfortunately he picked up a bottle. The cycle of addiction repeated itself and because of the extent of Nico’s over drinking he found himself staying in a building with no utilities. After exploring different counseling techniques that were not successful Nico turned to an alternative method for care, personal development.

The best Addiction Podcast out there

Love how relatable, raw and in-depth the stories are! Luke is very compassionate host, knows how to listen and hold space for people during very difficult and challenging conversations!

Loddy_Elek ,

Very informative and a great source of help!

I love these podcasts! Different peoples experiences with alcohol and drug abuse, how they got sober etc it is very eye opening, thought provoking and helpful to those who want to stop drinking or abusing drugs and to those who are already sober! Only downfall is the sound; some of the guests had very echoed sound and it was a little off-putting to listen to

Sagah Berglund ,

Very inspiring & enlightening in Recovery from Addiction
