Oran Canfield – The Only Way Out is Through

Listen to Oran Canfield, son of New York Times bestselling author Jack Canfield, share the fascinating story of his life and his dark descent into the world of addiction to heroin. His story is incredibly unique, from growing up as a circus performer and juggler to being student body president of his high school to experiencing his first acid trip with famous musician Jerry Garcia’s daughter.

As an adult his story was primarily centered on his involvement in the underground music and art communities in San Francisco and his story around his gradual descent into the world of drugs and eventual addiction to heroin. His story also includes seven separate stints in rehab, where he finally got sober after attending an experimental treatment center in the Caribbean islands.

In this interview hear how Oran finally got sober for good and what he does today to maintain his sobriety and find out what he means by one of his favorite quotes in recovery, “The Only Way Out is Through”.
