You probably know “KC and the Sunshine Band” from some of their old-school hits, like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty.” But in the midst of all their success, the band’s lead singer, Harry Wayne Casey had a huge drug addiction problem!

It’s taken Casey 40 years to get things figured out and to really feel comfortable and relaxed with who he is. It has taken some serious rehab, therapy and a lot of meditation and prayers, but he’s clean and sober. Check out an excerpt from his interview the Huffington Post—

Every day at Action Recovery Group’s drug and alcohol addiction treatment center, we help struggling individuals from all walks of life. Some, like Casey are entertainers or musicians; some are construction workers, accountants, store clerks, factory workers, military, dentists, temps, stay-at-home moms, college students, or even unemployed, and the list goes on and on. The point is, addiction is the great “equalizer”—it places everyone in recovery on the same playing field—in-the-trenches doing the daily work to break free from drug and alcohol use and get their lives back.

In our drug and alcohol rehab program, it’s amazing to see so many people from so many different places in society, come together in complete unity and support. Recovery creates a brotherhood and sisterhood that brings people together and celebrates the differences, and rejoices in the common bond of recovery!

No matter who you are—your background, education, employment, race, religion, sexual preference, etc.—you will fit right in at Action Recovery Group. All of the Action staff have been through their own recovery experiences—we get it! So, get yourself or your loved in for a free Clinical Addiction Assessment and start down the road to getting your life back! You don’t have to be a slave to drug or alcohol dependency and addiction. Freedom from addiction is in your future!
