Addiction to drugs or alcohol affects some 23 million Americans. Sadly, most of these individuals don’t seek help for their disease. If left untreated, substance abuse leads to overcrowded jail cells, expensive emergency rooms and most importantly, grieving families who can also tell you about a father, sister or other loved one who lost a life to drug abuse.
At the same time, there are countless stories about those who have conquered their addictions and are now leading healthy, happy lives.
Substance abuse is a disease, but with the right medical care it doesn’t have to be a death sentence. Have an excuse? Like your addiction problem is too out-of-control, or it’s been going on for too many years to be effectively treated? Whatever your situation, our treatment consultants have seen worse. And we’ve also seen worst-case addicts get better. If they can do it, so can you.
Angie, a recovering addict living in Alabama, told her story to the Mobile Register. Once a healthy cheerleader in school, Angie’s years of cocaine addiction took a severe physical toll. “My stomach perforated, it just blew up. And I wound up in the hospital for a month on a morphine pump, ” she said. “And when I got out, I was addicted to pain medication.”
For ten years, Angie was in and out of doctors’ office, trying to get prescriptions. When doctors finally turned her away, Angie began using Dilaudid, a synthetic form of heroin. She contracted a serious staph infection in her arms that almost forced doctors to amputate. “I was living in my car, and then finally chose to go live in the streets,” she said. “I didn’t know there was a way out.”
Angie’s family refused to give up hope, and one Christmas they offered Angie the present of a drug rehab stay. She accepted, and experienced a remarkable turnaround. Angie returned to school and resumed her education, and found a new career. She now works as an addiction counselor, helping others find victory over the same battles she faced. “My life has never been the same,” she said.
