During an interview with WINCLY, Jim Ross spoke on his battle with Opioid addiction. Here’s what he had to say:
I read the audio book which is the hardest thing I’ve done in my broadcasting career because every moment of every line in that book I could relate to. I had a little opioid problem back in the day that nobody knew about. I was taking Ambien like they were chiclets. If the Ambien didn’t get me where I needed to go – most of it was done at night so I could sleep – then I would take a Xanax. Then sometimes, being the egomaniac I was and being bulletproof, I would chase that all down with Crown Royal.
It was a really interesting time in my life and the drug recovery at White Sands was very helpful. I think people can relate to – maybe not the colon thing – but the challenges. My God, we’re in the midst of the biggest challenge in the history of our country with the coronavirus. People can relate to my issues because many of us are having issues as well.
