Darrin Eakins Wilmington NC
Darrin Eakins' career was turned upside down in 2008 when he was engaged in a serious life-altering accident. He had many injuries and was unable to function as a surgeon.
Numerous operations, despair, and chronic pain followed, finally leading to self-medication with narcotics and alcohol. He lived alone for the next 10 years, divorced and separated from his family and friends. He had no direction or purpose in life other than to medicate his mental agony and dissatisfaction with whatever medication was offered.
He spent a significant amount of time in and out of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities, mental institutions, and prisons. He ultimately hit "rock bottom" when he was discharged from a hospital in Florida after a near-fatal drug overdose, and he had no recollection how he got there from North Carolina. He tried rehab once again and ended up staying for nearly a year. Here, he made new friends, beliefs, and spirituality.
