    Just watched this episode; take it with a grain of salt, but personally the guy struck me as a total closet case. My theory is he self-destructed when the girlfriend broke up with him, thus ruining his last chance for a “normal” life (albeit one completely filled with lies), grandkids for his parents, etc.

    This one also reminds me how much more easily persuaded most of the addicts were to go to treatment in the early episodes. The rageaholic guy from the same ep went with no drama either.

      I could’ve sworn I just saw you post on Hubert’s page where you criticized people for bashing his views. I fail to see how this is any different personally.

    I am leaving tomorrow for a 1 year rehab program in the mountains of Tuscon, AZ. I will not have a cell phone or computer for the next 12 months. I am gonna get this right once and for all. Happy New Year….

      He must have left treatment early because he started posting on FB again this past July. It looks like he is sober and living in Prescott Arizona.

    His Facebook is full of conspiracy theories. Are the drugs still affecting his thinking? It looks like it.

    According to this, he passed away December ’21. Hmmm. Wonder if his over the top anti vax views had anything to do with his death…
