Edward S: Two and a Half Years of Sobriety and Livin’ the Life

Edward S. is livin’ the life.  He is a senior at Cal State Northridge, majoring in kinesiology.  Next year he will apply to grad school, aiming to get his PhD as a physical therapist.  Since Addiction Counselor Marty Brenner nudged him into treatment at Malibu Beach Recovery Center in August 2011, he has been the subject of a prize-winning LA Times photo journalism essay about his first month of sobriety, testified before the State Assembly Budget Committee about California’s Prescription Drug epidemic, restored relations with his family, gotten serious about his profession, and embarked on a significant relationship.

Edward first shared his story on November 10, 2012, and then again on January 18, 2013. 

Seth Isler recently checked up on Edward again.

    Prescription drug abuse can be termed as an Epidemic and individuals, specifically teenagers are widely misusing these drugs because they assume that these drugs are prescribed by the healthcare professionals, therefore safer than illicit drugs. The passage of State Senate bill and tough legislation to check misuse of prescription drugs for narcotics is vital for the safety of human health.
