Someone once said, “When journeying down the long dark road, we must continue on and never give up faith we’ll one day reach our destination…” and Timothy White did just that!
After struggling with addictions to cocaine, heroin and alcohol for seven years, Timothy found his road to recovery in his 21st detox program at Talbott Hall. And on August 28, 2011, he will celebrate four years of sobriety.
Sitting in his Grandview apartment, surrounded by his race car collection and Ohio State sports memorabilia, Timothy talks about being a full-time father to his 14 year old son, a registered voter and an active community member.
You would never guess Timothy traveled such a long dark road to reach his destination. After losing both of his parents within four months of each other – his mother to lupus and his father in a fire – Timothy went into a severe state of depression.
“Instead of finding a productive way to deal with my depression, I turned to drugs and alcohol,” said Timothy.
