Will's struggle with addiction started over 20 years ago. Will played college basketball and suffered a back injury. After back surgery, Will was given massive amounts of pain pills and injections so he could continue to play. It wasn't until he returned home that he realized that he was addicted.
For the next 20 years, Will fought to stay clean. He had periods of sobriety, but they always ended. The day that he was arrested for prescription fraud, was the day all of that changed. He finally KNEW that he was done. It was while in prison that Will decided that his purpose was to help others avoid the pitfalls of addiction.
In the years since his release, Will and Kristy began their crusade to fight addiction. Will has become a certified life coach and motivational speaker. He is also a member of the Utah Coalition for Opioid Overdose Prevention. Will and Kristy together started One Addicts Purpose in 2017 to help in the fight against addiction. They are passion about this work and have made it their life’s goal to educate others about the consequences of addiction and offer help those who are dealing with this demon.
