With over 27 years of sobriety, Rob attributes his wife as the inspiration to get sober and describes his journey through recovery as the path that brought him everything he values in life.
On his 25th sobriety anniversary he tweeted. “To those struggling with addiction, there is true, real hope, 25 years ago today, I found recovery; and a life of promise. #Grateful.”
