Best-selling author, artist and activist Ryan Leone walks Brittany through his harrowing experiences being a young addict, going through the prison system, and how he was able to get clean and become the great success he is today. Ryan details how getting a high-profile job at Spike TV didn't deter him from his $600-a-day crack addiction, how some difficult relationships and his habit led him to being in prison for 5 years, and how he ultimately got control of his life, sobered up and is now a successful author and activist fighting for prison reform.
