About Stephen Hill (https://speaksobriety.com/about/)

Stephen Hill had everything going for him growing up: a loving family, lots of friends, and he excelled in school – especially sports. Elevated to play on the junior varsity lacrosse team in 8th grade, Stephen was introduced to drugs and alcohol by older peers. He started drinking and smoking his freshman year of high school, and his life quickly spiraled out of control. Before long, he was addicted to prescription painkillers and heroin. The American opioid epidemic has taken the lives of many and destroyed even more. At the height of Stephen’s addiction, it seemed as if it were just a matter of time before he ended up just another deadly statistic. After a decade of substance abuse, multiple failed attempts at treatment, and numerous arrests, Stephen was finally able to achieve long-term sobriety. His story of hope and recovery will leave readers inspired and with a better understanding of addiction and recovery. Stephen is now living out his passion Speaking Sobriety to teens, parents, and teachers at schools and community events all over the country.
