Kevin’s Story

When Kevin’s hockey career ended, he was looking for the “same kind of high” that hockey provided -- and turned to drugs.

He began abusing pain medication and spent time in and out of treatment.

With the help of the Bucks County Opportunity Council, Kevin is working, self-sufficient, and in long-term recovery.

Here is his story.
