There is an Epidemic Coming to a Home Near You

Bethany Community Center in Itasca is excited to announce our second author, speaker and TV personality will be Tim Ryan.

Come join us on November 7th @ 7pm for this FREE event to listen and learn more about the addict/alcoholic and the need for treatment.


A tireless advocate for long-term recovery, Tim Ryan is no stranger to addiction. Despite a successful business career, Tim found himself in the grips of heroin and, ultimately, was sentenced to seven years in prison for drug-related convictions. Tim got clean and sober behind bars. 
Six months after his release, tragedy struck. His son, Nick – for whom Tim had paved the way to use deadly drugs – died tragically from an overdose. Reaching beyond the devastation and heartbreak, Tim used Nick’s death as the inspiration to spread hope, believing that if even one addict or family could be spared the horrors of addiction, he would make a difference. As a result, he founded A Man in Recovery Foundation, a nonprofit that helps anyone find treatment and recovery.

Tim’s message is inspiring, because he has walked the journey of addiction and recovery. He spreads hope and tools to those who need them most.
