Understanding Addiction ft. Jonny Craig

Understanding Addiction ft. Jonny Craig

Everyone please welcome this week’s guest to the bus – Jonny Craig! I have known Jonny for awhile, but had never gotten the chance to sit down and talk with him. Some of these stories are hard to listen to, but I’m thankful Jonny is able to tell them so that we can all learn from him.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• What caused Jonny to start taking opioids
• The cycle of addiction and how hard it is to break
• How Jonny joined Dance Gavin Dance
• Jonny new music & outlook on life
