108: From Hard Charging to Hard Drinking: Alcoholism, Treatment and Recovery with Sgt. Joey Rafferty

Podcast cover
Read more

Over 27 years, Sgt. Joey Rafferty had every dream job that a hard charging cop would want in a county that requires hard charges. Wedged between Philadelphia and Trenton, NJ, Joey had plenty of action to keep him in the game. It wasn’t until he crashed a patrol car with his kids in the backseat and got arrested for DUI that he finally admitted he had a problem. 

Sometimes, when you work hard you play hard too and Joey started to play hard often. In this episode you will learn: 

  • The red flags that Joey missed.
  • Why his partners knew he had a problem but wouldn’t say anything. 
  • How he asked for help.
  • Coping mechanisms he uses now instead of alcohol. 
  • How a relapse helped his sobriety. 

Even if you don’t drink, there are important lessons here about the warning signs that got missed, ignored, or explained-away. 

We owe it to each other to confront alcohol or drug problems in ourselves and others. Not only could we save a career but we could potentially save a life. 

If you think you or a partner have a substance abuse problem, here are a few resources for first responders. Also, check with your department’s EAP program or your health insurance provider.

Five days before he was scheduled to finish his tour in Vietnam, U.S. Navy F4 Phantom pilot Capt. Charlie Plumb was shot down on his 75th combat mission over enemy territory. He spent the next 2,103 days (almost 6 years) in an 8×8 foot cell as a Prisoner of War, tortured and beaten in the infamous Hanoi Hilton.

During nearly 6 years of captivity, Charlie shared cells with Sen. John McCain and worked as the right-hand to Admiral James Stockdale where he helped lead the resistance to their captors.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Charlie developed his personal Code of Conduct.
  • When Charlie was shot down, broken, bleeding and in immense pain that wasn’t even the bad news.
  • What he learned about leadership from being tortured.
  • Why the POWs had a lower rate of PTSD and stress-related issues than other veterans, and how their mindset saved their lives.
  • Why a positive attitude can be dangerous to your health.
  • How Charlie learned the Stoic ideas of accepting reality.

Charlie has been awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, two Purple Hearts, the Presidential Unit Citation, POW Metal , the Vietnam Service Medal and others. In 2010 he was elected into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame.

He’s also one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met and his ability to motivate anyone will leave you inspired after this episode.
