Daniel Juarez: The Truth About Addiction HYDRATE with Tracy Duhs

    • Alternative Health

In this episode of HYDRATE I interview my baby brother Daniel, comedian, musician, father and husband. He shares his raw and REAL journey with addiction.



Do you or someone you know struggle with addiction to pain medication or another form of addiction?



In this episode of HYDRATE, Tracy’s baby brother Daniel opens up about his battle with addiction and how the root of his addiction was a desire to numb out the pain of not feeling like he was enough.  His humbling journey is one we can all relate to. His vulnerability and quick quips will keep you engaged as he shares an honest journey of the mind and the progression of addiction. 
 
Daniel was in a car accident at 21 years old and was prescribed pain killers that ended up being upwards of 900 pills a month. This eventually led to street drugs such as Methamphetamine’s and Heroin 
 
In his story he opens up about how there was nothing anyone could say or any rehab (after 3 years of rehab) that could help him until he was ready to change. He shares the turning point, rock bottom and the mindset that he needed to help him choose that drugs were no longer an option for him.
