Drug addiction took over my life. By the time I was 21 years old, I was shooting up $300-$400 a day of heroin, along with using cocaine and marijuana on a regular basis. I decided to call my mom and let her know, fully, my condition as a drug addict. That’s when we found a rehabilitation program and I finally admitted that I needed help. I quickly began to realize that there was a great possibility I would be able to live my life without drugs. I graduated in 2001 and have been completely clean and sober since then. Now, I am happily married with a son. I work with a rehabilitation program to help others establish a solid future in recovery.
