Darryl Strawberry was one of baseball’s most famous and successful players until his addiction to drugs alcohol led him through a series of personal setbacks including arrests, prison and rehab. The Baseball Hall of Fame member joins The Doctors to open up about surviving his addiction.
The sports legend, who also battled cancer two separate times, credits the turning of his life around to a higher power. “I completely surrendered and my life has been transformed by the power of God. I tried everything else… and I got serious about my relationship with God and found my purpose.”
He also explains the help of those around him helped him successfully overcome his substance abuse issues.
“I don’t think [anyone] can do it alone, a lot of times people think they can. You need help. You need people that can speak up and care about you and my wife was a major part of my turnaround. I’m blessed to have her,” he continues.
Looking back on his career success, he says that he might have had fame, success and wealth, but he felt “empty inside,” saying he had very little freedom and felt like his life was toxic. Adding, “Money doesn’t make you well.”
The former baseball star now operates two different treatment centers and says he has reached out to Lamar Odom to offer him assistance with substance issues.
“People’s lives matter, people need to understand that,” he says of his desire to open facilities helping people with addiction. For more information on the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center, click here.
