Rock Bottom is one man's journey of overcoming addiction. It's a story of hope to those in a downward spiral and it will bring hope to those with an addict in their life. Rocky uses humor and honesty to share how the emotional landscape of a childhood filled with divorce, moves, abandonment, and alcoholism set up the dominoes of what eventually became his own fall into addiction. Fortunately, the story doesn't end there.
As a man, he scaled the heights of worldly success in his career, but all he had for a foundation was a crumbling sense of self-worth. When troubles came, his early education in addiction led to his own path in alcoholism, prescription drug abuse, and full-blown heroin addiction.
Self-destruction was the inevitable outcome of a life lived for himself, but after recognizing a few miraculous instances for what they were--opportunities to change--Rocky found a new way. Repentance and recovery has led to a redeemed life.
Rocky was certainly lost to his addictions, but his story proves that what is lost can be found.
