CARRIE'S STORY*

WATCH THE VIDEO TO LEARN HOW CARRIE CONFRONTED OPIOID DEPENDENCE

"What I’ve learned is that it doesn’t matter how hard you try to deny the problem or beat the problem or to put on the show for other people that everything’s fine. Eventually, over a period of time, the ugly face of addiction is going to show itself. Recovery is really hard, but there is hope. There are options available. I am still continuing to discover who I am. I realize that I’ve always been a strong person. That is something I didn’t realize before."

CARRIE,
mother, counselor, and recovering opioid addict
