When a career ending injury saw former Ireland and Millwall striker Richie Sadlier retire from football aged 24, his life spiraled out of control. Without structure and a sense of purpose, and fueled by a dependency on alcohol, he spent years running from dark memories and feelings that had haunted him since his childhood. Until one day he hit rock-bottom and decided to stop drinking and confront his demons.

Now a successful soccer pundit, psychotherapist and podcast host, Recovering is about a life shaped by efforts to escape and how it is possible to rebuild a life, piece by piece, with the right help. Inspiring and ground-breaking, it is an important reflection on the need to move away from perceptions of shame in our discussions about mental health, sex, relationships and addiction.
