ABOUT RITCHIE

Ritchie Farrell was a heroin addict. He grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts, the birthplace the textile revolution and the well-know home of “The Real Fighters,” WBA World Champion Irish Micky Ward and his brother Dickie Eklund. Farrell overcame incredible odds to win the du-Pont Columbia Award, arguably the highest a journalist can receive. His rise from the heroin filled streets of Lowell to the top can only be described as miraculous, heroic, and remarkable. Farrell’s amazing delivery catapults his audience towards the path of success.

Recovery Consulting

There’s no exact recipe that results in someone becoming a drug addict. We may start using drugs with friends as teenagers or young adults, or we were prescribed narcotics after an operation. After a period of time our drug use becomes habitual and we can’t stop. What used to be fun now becomes something we can’t imagine living without.

DONATE TODAY & SAVE A LIFE

ALL FUNDS GO TOWARDS OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission statement is succinct and crystal clear.

We are in the business of saving lives.

“ Someone in America overdoses on opioids every 3 minutes. If you’re an opiate user it’s not if, it’s when. Heroin’s grip on its users is monstrous, if they’re in the early stages of recovery, there is a 90% chance they’ll relapse."

 

In October of 2015, I wrote an article for the Huffington Post titled, I am a Heroin Addict. It went viral. Frankly, it changed the direction of my life.
