StoryCorps Chicago: 'Being A Drug Addict Is A Very Selfish Thing'
Ten years ago, Chad Hendry was living in Southern California, managing a construction company and finishing up a degree in architecture.

At the StoryCorps booth at the Chicago Cultural Center, Hendry talked about how those close to him helped shape his journey to sobriety.
