Dan Ewing’s been through dark times, but he considers himself blessed — with his family, his business, and his faith, all central to his life.
Ewing, who grew up in Juneau and graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1995, got into heroin when he was only 16. It's something that in time, all but one of his best high school friends would die from.
After high school, he left Juneau for the Lower 48 and punk rock. He was in and out of jail, and he overdosed — multiple times.
