Olympian Tony Hoffman to Talk Addiction for Rockville Goes Purple

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

Rockville Goes Purple will feature Tony Hoffman, who has been to prison — and to the Olympics as a BMX coach — will speak about addiction and recovery 6-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27 at Richard Montgomery High School Auditorium.

Tickets are free, open to the public and available through Eventbrite.

As a dynamic speaker who has been featured locally, nationally, and internationally, Hoffman will share the tools he has learned and uses daily to address his recovery and physical and mental wellness.

More details can be found on the English and Spanish flyers for this free event.

“I share my story of going from all-star athlete to prison to the Olympics, my childhood struggles with suicidal ideation, anxiety and depression, the importance of balance in mental wellness and how trauma is a precursor to substance use,” Hoffman states. “I explain how addiction works and the reformation of my life, including setting goals, developing healthy coping skills and how healthy friendships helped me reform my life.”
