A high achiever and superior athlete as a young man, Mike graduated from LA Chiropractics School in 1993. He married the love of his life and together they opened a small practice in Modesto, CA. The business flourished, as did their family. But Mike developed a life-threatening dependency on speedballing, which involves mixing cocaine and heroin. At 36-years-old, he's now lost his marriage, his business, and the custody of his children to his $1400-a-week drug habit.

His mother now hopes to save him through INTERVENTION™.
