I had nowhere to live – I was banned from my mother’s house and my father was in prison. I found myself standing in the parking lot of a 12-step program considering taking my own life – when a stranger offered to walk me inside. There, I found a support system that finally held me accountable for my own life.
I struggled with heroin use for over a decade, until I tried medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and it changed my life forever. Now, I have a college education, a career, healthy relationships – all things I never thought were possible.
I tried rehab – over and over again – I even tried taking my own life. But it wasn’t until I was in treatment for the 12th time that I finally took responsibility and ownership of my addiction – and my sobriety. I embraced recovery and saved myself.
