Athletes in Recovery
As a former NFL player with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 10 years, Randy used prescription pills to treat his career-related injuries, fueling an addiction that would last for 20+ years. Upon retiring from the NFL, Randy fell deeper into his addiction—eventually jeopardizing his family and risking everything. Finally, Randy asked for help. “I literally crawled into treatment. I prayed that God would open the gates of heaven and let me in. Instead, he opened the gates of hell and let me out!” A strong advocate for recovery, Randy launched “Athletes in Recovery” to remove the stigma of addiction and help athletes, their families, and others find addiction treatment and recovery resources. Randy is a frequent commentator on NFL Network, Anderson Cooper, CNN, Fox Sports, MSNBC, SiriusXM Sports, and others.
