Sam started smoking at 13. By 17, he was addicted to cocaine. In college he started binge drinking and taking Adderall. He chose Augsburg University in Minneapolis because it was near his dealer. Little did he know, Augsburg was home to StepUP, one of the few on-campus recovery programs in the country. Eventually, after hitting rock bottom, Sam decided to join StepUP. But then came the hard part: sobering up while still living with his party-animal jock roommates. And he had to figure out new ways of having fun--something to replace all the drugs, pill, and booze. To his surprise, Sam finds that he has a passion for classical music and tragic theatre, things the old Sam would've laughed at.
