PRO ATHLETES IN RECOVERY
"It's never too late
to get your life back."
FOUNDER RANDY GRIMES
IT'S EASY TO BECOME ADDICTED...
The last two years of my career, I played in a complete blackout. Throughout my NFL career I was taking so much medication to get through each game that most of the time I didn’t even remember being out on the field.
We get injured. We get treated. We keep playing. We get addicted. And if we’re lucky, we live to tell the story.
THE HARD PART IS ASKING FOR HELP BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
RANDY'S NEW BOOK IS AVAIILABLE ON FEBRUARY 8, 2022

A New Beginning
It takes a great coach and supportive team to recover.
In football, I wasn’t just accountable to my coaches. My teammates also held me accountable. Why? They wanted me to play well, so we could ALL win. The fans even held me accountable. I worked to make them proud.
Lost in addiction, I played the part of a coward, often sneaking around in dark places to get my fix, but a warrior lets actions speak more loudly than words and is willing to be held accountable. Warriors don’t hide; they live out loud and readily accept feedback—even criticism—if it helps them heal and grow. This is what treatment and recovery has done for me, and it has given me a life that I never imagined. Pro AIR is here to help you experience the same.
Life is worth living today. I could not be more grateful.
I didn’t reach out for help until it was almost too late. I didn’t know how or who to ask. I was ready for my next handful of pills to be my last and was taking at least 30-45 pills a day. I lost count.
It’s never too late to ask for help and get your life back. Every single day I am more grateful than the day before…for simply waking up. Some of the biggest accomplishments are those that once went completely unnoticed.
When I went to treatment, I thought my life was over, but what really happened was that my life was just beginning. Out of all the things that I’ve accomplished in my life on and off the field, this is by far my greatest accomplishment.
