Addiction doesn't care who you are or where you come from.  

Chris Sullivan was a Patriot from 1996 - 2002.  By all rights, he led a successful life. He also struggled with anxiety and addiction to drugs and alcohol, a struggle led to his retirement from the NFL.   Kathi Sullivan was a normal mom with a normal life. And then her 17 year old daughter, Taylor, drowned in 2 feet of swampy water--the result of underage drinking and poor choices.
