He later studied for the priesthood at a Basilian seminary where he remained for 9 1/2 years, leaving just a few days prior to being ordained. During his years of study, John developed a drinking problem, and on December 11, 1965, took a drastic step???he committed himself to Austin State Hospital for the treatment of his dependency to alcohol. John continues to celebrate that day; because that was the day he took his last drink. More at www.johnbradshaw.com
