SRN Recording: Matt Mendoza / The Real Edition

Matt Mendoza is a recovering addict and a life-long entrepreneur with an irrational sense of optimism for both. Following an 8 year battle with opiates, Matt's life was saved on the same day the secret service arrested him, which consequently lead to his current 5 and a half years of sobriety from any kind of narcotic.

Matt is the founder TheRealEdition.com, a publishing platform on all things addiction and recovery. He is also an outspoken advocate for finding new forms of treatment beyond that of 12-step based programs. Matt is also open about his occasional drinking—which some seem to have a major problem with.
