Mackelmore Reshaping Addiction

Macklemore spoke with Good Morning America about his experience with substance abuse and his journey to recovery.

He hopes to transform the narrative associated with sobriety by using his platform to encourage fans who also struggle. 

Macklemore recounts an instance where a man who robbed his Seattle studio was ordered to drug court, and two years later the man atoned his wrongdoings while in the same sessions.

As a result of Mackelmore’s positive impacts, the former culprit is a newly changed man.
