People in addiction recovery will sometimes talk about a "moment of clarity" that lead to their sobriety. For 48-year-old Nathan Boyer, that moment came after he fell off a ladder and his wife checked him into rehab.

Boyer shared his story during a live storytelling event hosted by the Indiana Addictions Issues Coalition in partnership with Side Effects Public Media at WFYI on Aug. 14, 2018.
