It is becoming more apparent that people are suffering from the disease of addiction and co-occurring disorders. Recently, the backup quarterback for the New York Jets, Erik Ainge, admitted he struggled with addictions to heroin, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs.
Erik Ainge told reporters that he has overdosed on drugs in the past and suffers from bipolar disorder. Ainge has had many stints in rehab, but is lucky to be enjoying his sobriety since July of last year.
He is thankful to God that he has another chance at life.
