Quick Introduction

At Pro Athletes in Recovery, we provide unique support for athletes and others with drug, alcohol, substance use disorders, and more.

Hi. My name is Randy Grimes. I am a 10-year NFL veteran who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I am also a recovering alcoholic and addict.

I literally crawled my way into a treatment center for my substance use disorder ten years ago, and my life today is beyond what I ever thought possible. I went from being physically, morally, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt to who I am today.

Pro Athletes in Recovery (PrAIR) was borne out of a sincere desire to assist other pro athletes with addiction issues.

After establishing PrAIR several years ago, there are many other pro athletes who have joined the AIR team, as well as generous donors who believe strongly in our mission.

Today, PrAIR has grown from being an organization that provided only moral support, to an organization with its nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. We currently provide peer support, resources, outreach services, and treatment center recommendations to athletes who are struggling with addiction, mental illness or having suicidal thoughts. We also provide financial assistance for Aftercare Programs.

Our “offensive team” and Mentorship Program at PrAIR is comprised of professional athletes who have recovered from a disease that almost killed us. Many of us lost homes, families, jobs, and more—all because of a disease that we didn’t understand, couldn’t stop and were deeply ashamed of.

If you’re reading this today, you have taken a mighty big first step. We’re glad you’re here. Welcome. You have suffered in silence long enough. You now have a team of supporters who are ready and willing to help you get your life back. Call us or fill out our confidential contact form and we’ll get back to you just as soon as possible.

Hang in there. There is hope. I was once you, and I know we can do this together.

God bless,
Randy Grimes
