Tim Ryan is known as “The Hope Dealer” for his gift of inspiring change in the hearts of addicts—and speaking to the real solutions in the opioid epidemic.
Tim unravels addiction by addressing the entire community. He works tirelessly to build awareness, tools, and lasting change in every group touched by addiction—parents, teachers, administrators, community members, healthcare providers, law enforcers, legislators, and more.
Tim is not just another talking head on the subject. He lost nearly everything to heroin—including his own son. It was in prison that he found recovery—and a passion to help others. Today, he is one of the nation’s most in-demand speakers and experts on the topic of addiction—and a tireless advocate for recovery. As the voice of hope in the opioid epidemic, Tim is a regular subject on national media and was an invited guest to the State of the Union address.
