Why did I want to talk with Shaun Weiss, known for his roles in The Might Ducks as Goldberg, Heavy Weights, and more? Shaun's addiction became public headlines, his mug shot appeared on the news and celebrity media outlets. With an outcry of support to get Shaun help, which included new teeth and rehab.
Shaun and I converse about similar struggles that led us down the path of addiction. Shaun shares the structure he grew up in with a workaholic father and his mother being a gambling addict.
He also shares that after his mother's death he crawled into an alcohol bottle for the next three years. He was eventually turning to harder drugs, with his prime DOC (drug of choice) becoming heroin.
In 2019 Shaun began to turn his life around by seeking sobriety. Not only did he start to live differently, his outlook on life completely changed as well. Shaun has many daily practices such as yoga, meditation, and continual 12-step work. He has become an inspiration to so many.
This is Shaun Weiss in his own words on Knockin' Doorz Down.
