By the time our guest Tom Wolf first encountered San Francisco Police Officer Rob Gilson, his addiction was spinning out of control. He was sitting in his car in the midst of a 10-day bender in the city's drug-ridden Tenderloin district. Wolf believes that without Gilson's compassion, he would most likely be dead by now.
Tom takes us through his journey from blue collar, family man into addiction, homelessness, and incarceration. Tom shares openly about his experiences along the way and what saved his life.
Now in recovery, Tom uses his voice as a recovery advocate not only in San Fransisco but across the country.
