Dave Yaegar: Military, Addiction, Recovery, and Advocacy
US Army Veteran Dave Yeager now devotes his life to helping and advocating for those in recovery from gambling. He is host of the podcast “Fall In: The Problem Gambling Podcast for Military Service Members and Veterans”. He is also the author of a book sharing his story from addiction to gambling through slot machine rooms on his military base while deployed, to criminal activity, a suicide plan, misguided interventions from those who “didn’t know what to do with me”, the struggle to find adequate help, and finally to now, a thriving life with healthy relationships and a purpose in helping others.
