I am a 39 year old white female who is recovering addict & alcoholic and still struggling with recovery. I am a mother of three small children and a previous school counselor. I have lost everything in my addiction including temporary custody of my children, my marriage, my house, my profession, and even the clothes on my back. After three treatment programs and being homeless I am have entered into my 4th program with the hopes of rebuilding my life back somehow. I want to share my story so that no person will ever have to endure what I have been through and can maybe have hope that if I can endure this pain someone else can too.
