The holidays are an extremely difficult time for those people struggling with drug addiction and, even more so, those closest to the addicts. I would know because I was one of these individuals struggling with drug addiction.
No one would have guessed that drugs would take full control over my life. Before trying OxyContin, my life was picture perfect. In 2005, I graduated from high school with honors, and even received academic scholarships to the University of Oklahoma. During college I began experimenting with drugs, and very quickly I developed an addiction to OxyContin.
The addiction quickly spiraled out of control when I began mixing the OxyContin with other prescription drugs. I ended up failing out of college and losing everything I had worked so hard to build. The next few years were filled with constant drug abuse and criminal activity, each year worse than the next. The holidays were the worst. I would go home to see family for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and I could see the disappointment and shame in their eyes.
Eventually, my drug addiction pushed my friends and family away. They wanted nothing to do with me. I was alone with only my addiction.
On Dec. 23, 2009, just two days before Christmas, I found a drug rehabilitation center called Narconon Arrowhead. Freedom from drug addiction was by far the best present I have ever received. The Narconon program changed my life forever. They helped me return to the life I had before drug addiction. I am back in school, and I have a great job. I am able to spend the holidays with my family, drug free.
