Strength in Family

Strength in Family

My niece started doing drugs in 7th grade to escape her depression. She went from this beautiful girl to someone we didn't recognize any more. The problem was hidden for over 7 years. We tried rehab and she always left. In October of 2012 she came to live with me, 750 miles from her home. She spent 2 months with us, detoxing and trying to get her head together so she could go home. She is back home and I see each day is still a struggle for her. But she is getting her diploma and working towards college. I know it is a roller coaster ride for her right now....but there is hope. When I think of where she was a year ago, I know there is hope.

This Story of Hope was created in celebration of recovery and to let families know that there are pathways to hope and healing. 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.
