When I got to White Sands I couldn?t see the point in going on another day. After 6 years of heroin use there was no drug that I didn?t do and I couldn?t live without being high. I was court ordered to treatment, which had happened before, but this time it was different. The people there made sure I didn?t get sick and suffer a bunch of horrible withdrawals without a fix. I?m sure that being here saved my life, and today I feel like I finally have a chance to make something of myself. Even my family has started talking to me again, something I thought would never happen. Today I see that it was my addiction and not me that my family resented and shut out, and if feels really good to finally have them want to be around me.
