    My friend’s in recovery. Music helped him survive

    My friend Coltrane Fisher is a 17-year-old musician and quite the character. As kids, we bonded over our similar love for music but drifted apart at the end of middle school as Coltrane started experimenting with hard drugs. By the beginning of high school, Coltrane went to rehab for opioids, among other drugs including alcohol.
