Linda's Story of Triumph Over Adversity

How my alcoholic stepfather raged during my childhood with physical abuse, sexual abuse and food abuse.

I'm recovering from alcoholism, opiate addiction, tobacco addiction and food addiction.

Through my story of recovery, slips, institutions to present with a life beyond my wildest dreams.

The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families who are struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page so that families know where to turn to for help, and that there is always hope.

I think childhood abuse leads us to abuse ourselves with drugs and alcohol in adulthood. You are inspirational in your triumph over the abuse you suffered and your need to numb it with substances. Congratulations and thank you for the hope.
