On todays episode of Hell Has an Exit, Bryan invites long-time friend and Minister Danny Prada to share how his spiritual journey began and how it came to be what it is today. Growing up a conservative Christian Danny encountered a point in his life where he began to face serious doubts about religion after coming in contact with some difficult elements in his life. After unknowingly joining a cult, he realized that almost all religion is competing.  After years of study and research he started a Bible study based on the Christian Bible. This soon evolved into a more open and understanding theology that invited all religions and all beliefs into the church. This new theology brought some serious anger from the Christian community that Danny had grown up in. He was basically ostracized and soon found himself alone. Danny had trained to be a servant of the people with more than five years on the front lines of the most desperate cases as a chaplain at the rescue mission. He was committed to giving his life and service of others.  His Bible study grew into the Heartway Church and his ministry group. After studying the mystics and the great teachings of all religions, Danny realized he had to find a way to open up his church to the LGBTQ community and continued his evolution as a pastor in modern times. Today he runs a passionate group of people who seek to evolve their humanity and find real spiritual truth and peace through the trials and tribulations of life. Don’s miss this important episode.

In Part 3 of 4 — of the Bryan Alzate Story, “Hell Has an Entrance”, we join Bryan on his road to recovery, at the very beginning of his sobriety and his entrance into the 12 step program.  After completing his stay at Detox, Bryan get’s picked by his parents. The approach his dad took was something Bryan really struggled with. As its common - people who just don’t know any different, blame the drugs as being the sole reason for all of the addict’s problems. As soon as Bryan gets in the car, his dad made it very clear that this was his last chance. That he wouldn’t be putting up with his shit any more and that he needed to man up and get his life together. He needed to cut the crap, finish school, go to college, and get a job.  As Bryan sat quietly in the back seat, his dad continued on. He felt it was an important parenting moment - he had to take this opportunity to really let Bryan know that this was it. That he had to just “get over” the drugs and grow up. He had no clue that while he yelled and screamed, his son was in the back seat contemplating suicide. They were living in two completely different worlds. Thankfully, Bryan had learned about meetings at detox. Something clicked and he realized that maybe it would be a good idea to give it a shot. At 17 years old, Bryan was ready to try and get clean. He figured he had two options - try anything, or end it all. What happens next is an odyssey into recovery. Bryan talks about the key relationships he formed & the magic and spiritual power of the 12 step program. He dives deep into his first year clean and opens up in detail about the good, the bad and the ugly. With the help and support of countless strangers, the Mad Russian, his amazing high-school teacher Mrs. Dean, and a commitment to recovery, Bryan begins to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Welcome to episode 34 of Hell Has an Exit Podcast with Bryan Alzate. This episode is Part 1 of 4 of the “Hell Has an Entrance” special, where host - Bryan Alzate, begins to share his own personal story. Bryan grew up in good neighborhood with plenty of friends. On paper, his environment seemingly provided everything a kid could ever need to flourish and have a healthy and normal upbringing. For many reasons though, he always felt different. Through the years, Bryan has had the ability to do some deep self-reflecting, he’s gone back and worked through some of his earliest memories, childhood experiences and traumas. It’s through this, that Bryan has come believe that he may have very well been born an addict.  By 9, Bryan smoked for the very first time with the new punk rock kid that had just moved in next door. He realized how quickly he could make friends through smoking weed with just about anyone. From that day forward, it became clear to Bryan that drugs would be his way to acceptance. Being the little brother, it wasn’t unusual for his older brother to reject him, (as siblings often do growing up) but when Bryan offered to smoke them out - he was instantly accepted and became part of the group. He was no longer “the annoying little brother”, he was cool now. Bryan decided that having weed on him at all times was the answer to fitting in. It became the social lubricant that would open the door to any social group and make him the cool kid in any crowd. By the time Bryan was 13 or 14 he was already dealing weed, experimenting with cocaine, and had been arrested for the first time. In an attempt to keep Bryan from continuing down the wrong path, his parents shipped him off to Military school freshman year of highschool. They could have never imagined that this would be the beginning of an even more intense downward spiral. Bryan quickly became the known cocaine dealer at his new school. Every day, he dove deeper into his cocaine and drug addiction, taking it on as his main motivation in life and making drugs his defining characteristic.  In a turning point of events, Bryan’s buddy took him to a “crack house” for the first time so that he could sell more cocaine. Bryan’s eyes were opened to a whole new world. Within a few months, he would take his first hit of crack - Bryan describes it his own words as being “love at first toke”. By the time he was 17, Bryan found himself spending most of his time at crack houses addicted to heavy drugs… The host of our show found out from a very early age that Hell Has an Entrance, walking miles in these footsteps, he was able to experience the absolute hell that is “addiction”. It is through these experiences that he not only brings us the Hell Has an Exit Podcast, but is also able to deliver us the message of HOPE. Through his devotion to recovery, Bryan has had a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of addicts - helping them get clean through sharing his story, through United Recovery Project - the addiction treatment center he co-founded, through sponsorship, or through his dedication to the Hell Has an Exit Podcast.
