Gay Porn Star Scotty Knox Opens Up About Opiate Addiction

Anyone that has gone through the trials and tribulations of recovering from an addiction of any kind—especially opiates—knows that it is a very long a rough path to travel. So, we send all of our love and support to adult performer Scotty Knox who took to Twitter to share the start of his journey to recovery.

Scotty made his debut with the studio Colby Knox a little over a year ago and has built up quite the following in the months since. From what he shares of himself on social media, he seems like a great, down-to-earth guy who deserves to live the life he wants to live.

The path to sobriety is a tough one, and we're not going to try and get all PI on his reasons. Everyone has their own reasons and their own history. Once again, we wish only the best for Scotty and hope that by sharing his journey, others going through similar struggles might be inspired.

Help Dealing With Addiction

If you or someone you know is dealing with addiction, there is help available out there. Here are a few options if you decide to move forward in one path or another.

Needle Exchanges: The first step isn't always trying to get someone clean and sober. If you know of anyone that uses street drugs intravenously, make sure that they are informed about needle exchanges and where to find them.

Suboxone Clinics: There are many outpatient programs and clinics that provide outpatient opiate detox programs with the drug Suboxone. Finding one can keep you from experiencing the worst of withdrawal symptoms without the risk of the prescribed regimen being abused intravenously.

Support Groups: I downright disagree with the actual mechanism of action of Narcotics Anonymous. The AA-style step system is flawed in many ways. However, a group of people going through the same issues is better than attempting to go it alone.

Cautious Drug Use: The Friday/Monday foundation in the UK has drug-specific guides on how to use drugs safely, avoid addiction, see the warning signs of addiction, and battle addiction if it occurs.

Lastly, if you need to talk to someone who has gone through addiction battles of their own, feel free to reach out to us on Twitter. Our DMs are open, and we're always around to chat.
