Author: Joe Putignano
A world-class athlete’s harrowing tale of two passions: his ardent love for gymnastics and his intoxicating romance with heroin.  Gritty and raw, this is a story that goes beyond the typical addiction memoir.    A gripping narrative that captures the fragility and tenacity of the human spirit and how Putignano ultimately triumphs in his recovery and redemption.

Follow the author as he goes on a harrowing journey from the US Olympic Training Center to homeless shelters to shooting heroin on the job to being declared dead.

Acrobaddict is a story about the close relationship between athletics and drug addiction – how the same energy, obsession, and dedication that can create an Olympic athlete can also create a homeless drug addict.
