“Addiction Doesn’t Define Me” – Robert’s Story

“While using drugs, I was constantly looked at wrong and verbally abused. I lied about my use and I hid it, and I was embarrassed of my parents who also suffered from substance use disorders. I hit rock bottom and relapsed a number of times, which led to more judgement, mocking and ridicule. I have now been clean and sober for 10 years and 4 months, and let’s just say, my life of turmoil has turned into a life I treasure.” – Robert D.
