As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis Reveals He’s Pursuing A Master’s Degree In Social Work


As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis has revealed his current academic pursuits, which include him becoming a certified addiction treatment counselor and pursuing a master’s degree in social work. Lambesis has some experience in the field, having battled steroid addiction in the past. Speaking via his social media [see the post below,] he commented:

“I’m slowly getting comfortable sharing parts of my life, little by little.

Taken at an end of the school year party last semester. I can’t believe it’s already a new school year!

A lot of people have been asking what I’ve done with most of my time over the past 5+ years. School is one of many things. It’s hard for me to sit idle, so I took almost every class I could. I got a handful of undergraduate degrees in the process, but what interested me most were courses in addiction treatment.

I ended up becoming a Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor and started working as a case manager for a year in the process of collecting field hours for my certification. Then in 2017 I began a Master of Social Work program.

The smile you see here comes from a sense of relief after finishing the first year of the MSW!…”

Lambesis and As I Lay Dying officially reunited earlier this year and are gearing up for their first proper tour together since 2013. The lengthy hiatus came about as a result of Lambesis having been sentenced to jail after having pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. That charge resulted from his attempt to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife in 2013. He was paroled in December of 2016.
