ATTACKED AND RELAPSED NOW WHAT?
(Plainfield, New Jersey)
I was attacked on my job April of 2010 by a co-worker, he jumped on me and just started choking me, got in his truck and left, I went inside and told management what happened and then called the police.
He was later terminated but something happened to me mentally. I have been an addict most of my life always battled with heroin and crack. But GOD had a plan for me and I was clean for a while, but like I said it's always been a struggle.
On April 2 2014 I was called into the office of my job and asked to take a drug test,I told them I had a drug problem and I needed help. I was told they would try to help me but still would have to take the test long story short I was terminated and denied my unemployment benefits.
Almost 15yrs on the job with 8 managers and this last one was a racist. Two kids a wife and a mortgage NOW WHAT it's sad I admit I have a problem never tried to hide it but why not help a person who needs help.
