    Former Jets quarterback Ray Lucas, who was admitted to a Florida drug rehabilitation facility last week to treat the painkiller addiction he developed during his NFL career, has been chronicling his experiences on Facebook, as the Daily News reported:

    Lucas has decided to write about his journey through drug rehab on Facebook to draw attention to what he calls the NFL’s indifference to retirees’ chronic health problems and to encourage other retirees with addiction problems to seek help. He also wants to promote Pain Alternatives Solutions and Treatment, the New Jersey medical group that has provided Lucas and other needy former athletes with pro bono surgery and care. “PAST saved my life,” Lucas says.

    Lucas is being assisted by Randy Grimes, the former Tampa Bay center who helped beat his own painkiller dependency thanks to BHOP and PAST and now works as a counselor for BHOP.
