From Dope To Hope:
A Man In Recovery

 This is the addict’s journey: how it happens, how it progresses, and how it ends. Fortunately, this is also the journey of recovery: how it happens, and how it blossoms.
There is always hope

—Dr. Drew Pinsky, M.D.


Heroin didn’t make Tim a better person. It stole more than half of his life. But he’s dedicated every waking minute since walking out of prison to dealing hope to addicts and their families. By his own account, Tim Ryan shouldn’t be here. But as he states, “Where there is life, there is hope.” Known as The Hope Dealer, Tim was a successful entrepreneur, and today is a grateful recovering heroin addict and alcoholic, nationally ranked barefoot water skier—and truth-talking, convicted felon.

  • As a business leader in a high-tech industry, Tim made and lost millions.
  • As a father and husband, Tim introduced his own son to deadly drugs.
  • As a heroin addict, Tim is a walking miracle. He’s overdosed eight times, was pronounced clinically dead three, and suffered two minor heart attacks. He’s been arrested more than ten times and served prison time alongside known gang leaders—many of whom became his closest confidants in recovery.
  • As the founder of A Man in Recovery Foundation and motivational speaker, Tim’s mission is to help one addict at a time transform their lives from dope to hope.

Tim has been a featured thought leader in numerous national media, including USA Today, Newsweek, “The Steve Harvey Show” with Dr. Drew, and dozens of nationally syndicated radio shows. He was an invited guest by the U.S. President to the 2016 State of the Union Address.

This story chronicles Tim’s grueling journey into addiction, loss, and recovery. Sit with Tim in his prison cell. Walk with him as loved ones are torn from his reach. Rejoice with him as lives are miraculously recovered.
