Dr Oz: Drug Czar Michael Botticelli
Dr Oz was exploring the heroin epidemic taking place in our country, and explained that we actually have a drug czar by the name of Michael Botticelli. Dr Oz said if there’s anyone out there who knows how addiction can devastate a family, he’s the one. Michael started drinking regularly by junior year of high school and was binge drinking in college. By his 20’s, he was an alcoholic in denial. In May of 1988, while driving drunk, he crashed and woke up to find himself handcuffed to a hospital bed. In court, the judge offered him a choice, jail or treatment?
