After being dependent on heroin for 15 years and spending a number of terms in prison, Woodward had what he describes as a religious experience that resulted in his life being totally transformed. This led to him becoming an evangelist. Since then, he has become a contemporary communicator who is humourous, passionate, and inspirational. Each year, he speaks at approximately 130 events, and occasionally contributes to discussions related to drug issues on the BBC, Channel 4, and Sky TV.
