Ep. 10 – Greg McNeil, fighting opioid addiction through charity and education

Greg McNeil founded the 501(c)(3), Cover2 Resources, after losing his son to the heroin/opioid epidemic in 2015.  His organization’s mission is to help opioid users and their loved ones find help, and to mitigate one’s chances for becoming addicted to opioids through access to premier resources, service providers and preventative educational programs.

In this episode, we hear about the path from opioid addiction to heroin addiction and the emotional toll it takes on a user’s loved ones.  We hear about how “signs and symptoms” of drug abuse are often hard to discover, and how opioids and heroin take hostage of the human brain.  We hear about ways in which families desperately seek recovery options for their loved ones and how a relapse is most often part of the recovery process.  We end with a discussion on ways in which Greg and his foundation are providing resources to users and to their families in hopes of them achieving a different outcome than the one faced by the McNeil’s.

Ep. 9 – Casey Wandell, motivational speaker and Title Boxing Club franchisee

Casey Wandell is an owner/franchisee of Title Boxing Club, a franchise that not only changed his life, but saved his life.  He currently owns and operates six locations from Cleveland to Columbus.

In this powerful, riveting and emotional episode, we hear about Casey’s path from a college graduate with a bright future to a broken man on the verge of self-destruction.  We hear about the brutal realities that many people face in failed marriages and the emotional repercussions that come with.  We hear about how alienation of family and friends is a product of internal misery and demise.  We hear about the negative consequences of alcohol, especially when being used to mask one’s pain on a daily basis.  And we hear about the ways in which one still “finds” themselves; still finds a way to come out of the dark and face the light so that inner peace, happiness, love and hope can be achieved.  For Casey, that light was a placed called Title Boxing Club, a place that would save his life and alter his course forever.
