Randy Grimes was an NFL player with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He considered taking painkillers to be a "necessary evil" - part of the job description. However, he left the NFL addicted to painkillers and spent the next 20 years in the depths of addiction - losing friends and almost his lovely wife - Lydia. Lydia stood by him throughout that whole time and finally got him into a treatment program that stuck. Now they are giving back through their non-profit, Pro Athletes in Recovery.  Hear from Randy and the woman who helped to save him.
