I see that none of you idiots that talk trash have the balls to post your real name. Well here's the real scoop Darick is stone cold sober, just celebrated his 1 year anniversary clean, has a good job, and a beautiful girlfriend in Austin, TX.

He's been my best friend for over 20 years and as I type this, he's sitting on my couch in MN visiting me and my family. He looks better than ever and he's a peaceful man. No drugs, no anger. He wishes you all the best, especially those talking trash he said he'll pray for you.

That was very uplifting to hear. Tell Darick there are some of us that are really pulling for him and wish him the absolute best in his recovery process.. He is an inspiration to me! Tell him its the guy he almost got into a fight with in eagle mart parking lot one night over Travis Shelton while he was dating Jill.. He should remember. Anyway, best of luck to you man and thank for you being an inspiration to me.
Best to you DB

Great to hear an update like this from one recovering addict to another. I know I don't have to tell you this but stay as far away from this town as possible. Lots of peace and love to you.....

I have read these posts after watching the Darick episode on On Demand...9/2011. It struck my attention because of having friends from Lafollette, TN. I have to agree with some of you... To those of you whom are speaking ill of this man & making dumb remarks; YOU sound ignorant. MOST of you can't spell (or maybe you just speak in an ignorant fashion). I agree with all whom are in support of this man. If he did leave the rehab; give him credit for going in the first place and for the days he does have clean. If he went once; there is a part of him that truly does want it. It doesn't come easy and this I personally know. It may not happen the first or second or even third time he attempts treatment but I saw how he respected and spoke of his family and a man like that AND a man who's biggest dream is to be a good husband and father... Are you serious??? He wants the good in life and tho I do not know him... If he is clean... I guess I wish I did because seems like a pretty good catch if you ask me. Coming from a relationship where my ex cheated and stole and conned my entire life away before divorcing me.... Darick seems to be a good man. I hope he is clean. For himself, his family, and the lucky woman that will enjoy a clean life with him. I am going to pray for he and his entire family. I wish you all the very best.

I am a police officer and see what the drugs do to people, family and lives everyday. Your story touched me and wish you the best. My best to you from Galveston County !!!

Darick,
Your story gives me hope. I have faith that addicts can change who they are and who they become and I didn't have that before (faith, that is). Thank you for allowing everyone to see behind the curtain. I know that chances are you will not read this, however, I will place this here for you to find should you ever stumble upon this page. I do not know you but I am proud off you for each day that you face your addiction and choose sobriety. My brother is an addict. He prefers Crystal Meth. He has faced several health issues related to his addiction on his own and without treatment. He has described symptoms that are related to heart attacks and strokes but refuses to seek medical attention because in doing so he would be admitting that he has a problem. I'm just learning that an addict will never find fault in using or place the blame on the drug even if it almost kills them. I had nearly given up hope until I watched your story. I know that if he really really wants it, he can turn himself around. Thank you! I hope to see a positive follow up in the near future.

I just watched Daricks episode of intervention and was just trying to find an update on how he was doing. I am an RN at a rehab facility in Newburgh , IN. Darick would be a great inspiration to other addicts! I see good people fighting for their lives everyday and I was happy to hear this guy is doing so well! I hope you have found someone to build that family you deserve with! God Bless

I don't know what the prosecutors think about his or anyone else using drugs in "their" county. I would just go ask them. You do know they are actually paid employees of the county. When a taxpayer or resident of "their" county wants to know something they will usually answer questions on things that are public knowledge. I'm sure they won't discuss any specifics with you' but could answer questions on "their" thoughts for you. That's one way to find out. As for the arrest , I guess he wasn't as strong As he thought he was.

God loves dereck just like he loves all of us. In God's eyes he is a worthy human being, I pray that God comforts him and helps him get back on the right track. His life is worth saving. He deserves grace, joy, happiness, and freedom. He is a child of God too.
