Actor of the hit FX show, “Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll,” author, comedian and voice-over extraordinaire, Denis Leary has thrown his support behind Road Recovery, an organization dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities, to help change lives.
In this interview, he opens about his longtime friend Adam Roth, who went Emerson College with Denis and is a member of the Boston-based band The Del Fuegos. Adam is also involved Road Recovery and now they both know first hand how it positively impacts young people.
Leary and Roth now play, write and record music together and have gone on to perform at a number of Road Recovery’s benefit concerts to help raise funds/awareness for the charity.
Road Recovery is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources.
With support from the mental health field, Road Recovery provides hands-on mentorship training, educational/performance workshops, peer-support networking, and “all access” to real-life opportunities by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events and recording projects.
Road Recovery empowers young people of all backgrounds to face their struggles and helps them develop comprehensive life skills, guided by professionals and supported by a community of like-minded peers.
