Will is a native of Huntsville, Al. Will started experimenting with drugs and alcohol when he was 12, and his use progressed through high school. After high school, he enrolled in community college in 2007, then transferred to Auburn University. Due to drug abuse, he was put on academic suspension and forced to move home. Will quickly found himself in the middle of an opiate us disorder. After a failed attempt in treatment and trying to do it on his own in the rooms of AA, he finally found a solution through the 12 steps at The Reprieve. After completing a year at The Reprieve he went to work at a sober living in South Carolina, before returning to The Reprieve to work as a program specialist.
