Hello: Just to let everyone know - after 11+ years of drug and alcohol abuse I am celebrating my 6th month of freedom. It can be done, you don't have to be enslaved to substances...you do have a choice. I got my sobriety through A.A. but there are many other treatment options available too. Take advantage of whatever help you can get. It will not be an easy journey, but in my small experience..so worth it! Please don't short yourself on the biggest gift you will ever have - your life.
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.
