The deep drug-induced hole these people put themselves in took an incredibly unhealthy toll on their bodies. In fact, most of these people are lucky to be alive today. But from the ashes of their shattered lives, these brave souls dug themselves out of their Hellish addictions, got clean and sober, and look a million times healthier ever since.
More than two years free from Heroin
“On June 11th 2014 I went to jail for 36 days on a contempt charge. Without delving too deep I’ll just say that I was in a really abusive relationship that led to my daughter going to live with my mother. She is my whole world, so when that happened I fell into a deep depression and leaned to my abusive boyfriend for emotional support. His answer to making me feel better was heroin.
After 8 months of daily use and a few half assed attempts at getting clean, I told the judge preceeding over the guardianship case of my daughter that I had been using and that I needed help. He found me in contempt of court and put me in the county jail until he could find me a bed in a rehab. From there I went to the best rehab in my state.
Recovery has been an uphill battle, but now I am at a point where it all just feels like a bad dream.”
