232: Adi Jaffe | Coming Back from the Lowest Point in Life

Feb 17, 2020 | Interviews, Podcast


Dr. Adi Jaffe grew up in Tel Aviv, and when he moved to the US he had some challenges assimilating and figuring his life out. This led to drugs, alcohol, and a swat team arriving at his door. His story reads just like a movie, and because of that, I don’t want to spoil the ending for you. You’ll just want to hear it for yourself.
