Aaron was always rebellious, even as a young child. At 13 he started smoking marijuana and drinking at 14. He quickly discovered how easy it was to steal pills from friends’ bathroom cabinets. Aaron says he was addicted to Oxycontin for a year and a half. At age 20, Aaron was arrested for writing fake prescriptions for pills. This led to his bottoming-out, in 2001, when he entered an in-patient rehab center and has been sober ever since.
