FROM ADDICTION TO RECOVERY: By all appearances,  Brian Cuban had it all: education,  successful career, a winning personality. But for years he was  hiding a secret life of addiction that almost led him to suicide.   He’s written a  book:  SHATTERED IMAGE  that delves into his struggle with eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder and the stigma of addiction.

Aired Tuesday, September 27, at 12 noon. Bill Beckett spoke with director Logan Sledge along with Aiden Polling and Tessa Anderson who will be featured in a new production of The Rise and Rise of Daniel Rocket, a play by Peter Parnell, which opens this Thursday night, September 29, at 7:30 p.m. There are also performances this Friday and Saturday, at 7:30 p.m., and this Sunday at 2 p.m.

SHATTERED IMAGE - Brian Cuban  is the younger brother of billionaire Mark Cuban,  owner of the Dallas Mavericks.  Brian is a successful lawyer and activist for First Amendment issues and  hate speech.  However, the relationship with fame and fortune has not always been beneficial to Brian.  Over the years,  he has struggled with addiction to alcohol and cocaine,  negative body image, depression, suicide and steroid use.  Red River Radio's Chuck Smith spoke with Brian recently to discuss his journey to recovery and how he overcame the stigma of addiction.
