If you’ve seen Nate’s Documentary, ‘Nate & the Detective’, you know that (former Detective) Sergeant Gerardo of the Fort Wayne Police Department is a major part of Nate’s recovery story.
Sgt. Gerardo dropped by the studio today to chat with Nate & Tommy, not just about their uncommon friendship, but also Sgt. Gerardo’s experience and perspective from a policing aspect on how we can better approach addiction in our communities.
Had Nate been driven off to another jail cell, rather than helped to treatment through the care and understanding about the root cause of addiction by this officer, Nate very well might not be here today. Take a moment to watch (or listen on your preferred podcasting channel) to this powerful and important conversation.
