Imagine joining a gang because they had the best cocaine.

Actor, Richie Stephens moved from Ireland to San Francisco and became the only white, Irish guy in an all Asian gang.

But what would you do if you if the drugs and the booze took over, and started to come before everything you loved? Would you put a gun to your head and end it all? Or would you call the guy who said, “If ya ever want to get sober give me a call,” and surrender for the first time in your life?
