  1. Wow, powerful. :o
    It’s so easy judging drug addicts from afar… but it becomes more nuanced and complex, once you seen them as human beings, with frailty and fears…
    not so different from us, after all.

  2. You nailed it. More people need to understand that addiction is a disease and it needs to be treated like one. The good news is there is a solution.

  3. I know all to well the descriptions he speaks of. I write often about the itch that I needed to scratch. Well done. Great piece.

  4. I’ll be sharing this with my clients. Although they are adolescents, I know they will be able to relate. Sadly, things are changing for the worse where it comes to recovery programs. Money is disappearing as are programs. Many of them have shut down in Illinois and the ones that are still here are cutting their length of stay. It IS a disease and many people don’t want to recognize it as a disease.
