Vela is also the host of “Back from Broken,”a recovery podcast that features inspirational stories from people who have overcome their addictions and learned from adversity; an effort very close to him as he has more than six years in recovery himself. During Vic’s episode of Addiction Talk, he’ll speak about his 15-year addiction to cocaine, his HIV diagnosis and his fateful road to recovery.
