Jason Peter was, at one time, completely devoted to heroin. As a star football player in college and first round NFL draft pick, Peter had plenty of money and fame to feed into his addiction. What started with opiates turned into an addiction to stronger and more dangerous drugs. Once his injuries made him leave the field, his addiction grew with his seemingly untiring supply of money, time, and need for pleasure. Peter later got clean and, along with co-author Tony O’Neill, tells his unflinching story of addiction and his road to recovery.
