Overview

As Tony Mandarich left Green Bay in February, 1993, his football career in shambles, Packer Plus staff writer, Tom Mulhern, wrote the following:
"The overriding sentiment, however, is one of emptiness. Not so much for promises unfulfilled, but for sins not repented. Maybe some day Mandarich will set the record straight and answer all the nagging questions he leaves behind. I hope so."

For all the sports writers, fans, coaches, friends and family, My Dirty Little Secrets sets the record straight. On the 20th anniversary of his draft in 1989, Tony reveals the reasons why he never achieved what the nation expected of him, and what he expected of himself. His story is an inspiration for alcoholics and drug abusers, and offers hope for those trying to help themselves out of the nightmare of addiction.

* My Dirty Little Secrets promises to help readers Learn about the power of addiction
* Discover how co-dependency and enablers affect addicts
* Understand why treatment for addictions is so important in recovery
* Realize the importance of emotional suppot systems in the lives of alcoholics
* Accept the role of the Higher Power's grace in recovery

"My Dirty Little Secrets is a testament that faith in a higher power can bring us to salvation and light. Tony's story is touched by magic and brushes against the tragic. It's a great human journey and a victory for the human spirit."
--Jim Irsay, Owner, Indianapolis Colts, Super Bowl (r) XLI Champions

After a highly successful and nationally publicized college career at Michigan State Unviersity, Tony Mandarich was drafted number two in 1989. The hype about his power and standing as a football player along with Tony's addictions, was more than he could live up to, and his life came crashing down around him. After three more years of alcohol and painkillers' abuse, Tony accepted God's hand, went into treatment and now considers it a privilege to be able to help other addicts when called upon.
