Steven Lancione, 61, speaks passion and sincerity. To look at him, you would never suspect he once had a secret life working for the mob and a drug addiction that controlled him for decades.

Born to a hard-partying mother and absentee father, Lancione grew up lonely and neglected. Left largely to his own devices, by age 15 he discovered drugs. It was that same year that his mother started using him as a drug mule.

He started off smoking marijuana and then graduated to mescaline and LSD. In his 20s, his drug of choice was cocaine. By the time he reached his 30s, he had moved on to opioids and heroin.
