Tad was well-known in the Atlanta community as a successful real estate developer. Then he was arrested for a DUI and made the news. In treatment, he learned that his business success didn’t necessarily translate into success in recovery. In fact, he found out that he needed to accept his weakness if he wanted to stay sober. By participating in community life at MARR and diving into 12-Step recovery, he found a way of life that provided him with peace of mind as he had never experienced before.
