“My wife reached out to the NFL and got me help from my drug addictions. From all I had done with pain medications and then some, I found the benzos were the hardest to beat because of the seizures and my own fear. Now, us once broken people get to go out and help other broken people. That is what I get to do today maintaining recovery”… ~Randy Grimes
I’d like all my recovery friends and recovery readers to meet a wonderful man who has been to hell and back with addictions. I welcome Randy Grimes! Yes, you may know him as an 80’s former college football star at Baylor University of Texas and in 1983 to 1992 the drafted into The NFL after for The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But one thing Randy knows when that is all over? He and many professional players are left with many injuries, surgeries, and suffering much pain after their career is over. They also try to find in their lives, “What’s Next?” When football is over, they go on a journey looking for “now what.” Randy found his calling and feels his new journey is now started along with his bride, Lydia to help families and those afflicted know there is Hope & Help from ALL Addictions.
Randy knows GOD had him go through the negative to learn lessons, wisdom, and faith to set him up for all the positive he is doing today. He is now an interventionist, a speaker, and shares his experiences along with Kevin Dixon both of Intervention Now & Behavioral Health of Palm Beach. Randy and Lydia, his wife, continue to share their experience with addiction and recovery using their knowledge and experiences healing to help not only athletes but any family struggling with their journey to recovery.
The work Randy does is a true inspiration to many like myself and to many of my recovery friends like Vance Johnson, Kristin Walker, Marilyn Davis, Dr. Kevin Coughlin just to name a few. It is always a “breath of fresh air” when “God” brings certain people in our lives for however long or short and I am a firm believer for a purpose.
“We as advocates doing outreach see at times other advocates doing work but sometimes not from the heart, for a true calling, just for an agenda. Randy is NOT one of those people. He is open-minded, big-hearted and truly cares about those suffering or dying from drug addiction and tries to reach them and their families with HOPE and HELP. As he says; “The time is NOW, not tomorrow, or wait to try something else first. Stop ignoring what is right in front of you.” Here is more of an in-depth look at the work Randy and Kevin do at Intervention Now.

And, meeting new advocates, coaches, interventionists, and new recovery friends like Randy is just “The Icing on My Recovery Cake!” Lol!
As Randy mentioned to my dear friend Kristin Walker, Host of everythingEHR ~ Mental Health News Radio “It seems we always hear the negative side about treatment, rehab and other places and not enough about all the Positive hard work they do to help people from addictions as so many are losing their battle and family losing loved ones.” You can hear the full Guest Interview with Randy on Kristin’s Show as it is a powerful and informative intimate testimony by Randy…So click on the blue link and give this interview with Randy a listen.
I want to personally thank Randy for allowing me to share just a wee bit of all he does along with his wife, Lydia. We need some many more warriors out here sharing a message of Hope, Faith, Healing and Sharing Help to those looking to claim their lives back from the enemy and the bonds of addiction!
