Heroin Abuse Stories are Important
In meeting and working with addiction recovery patients over the years I have found that one of the most important aspects of their recovery is having the opportunity to share their story, their life experience. Heroin Abuse stories don't often have a happy ending but what ever the ending sharing them is helpful.
A former teacher of mine is a psychotherapist, who always talked to us about getting to the "essence of self" when helping people tell those all important Heroin Abuse stories. It is the essence of self that drives the person's perceptions and creates meaning in life. Your Heroin Abuse stories are important. You are not alone and maybe there is someone who will benefit from you sharing your experience. We encourage you to gather your thoughts and share them with us.
A few Heroin Abuse stories
Here are a couple of Heroin Abuse stories that describe the process of recovery. We’re hoping that you will share your stories with us as well so that others can learn from your experiences.
Many people tell us that it helps them to read others Prescription addition stories because they understand what they've gone through a little better. Many times therapy sessions are simply a place where people come and share their Heroin Abuse stories.
You may find that sharing your Heroin Abuse story anonymously is the first step toward dealing with addiction.
Brother a heroin addict?
How can i help my brother, i have an older brother whom i very close too. He has taken drug all his life but has got worse over the last few years.
Has had rehab once, he shots up 4-5 times a day, he shuts himself away in his room as his marriage has broken up and doesn't come out for days, he has lost a huge amount of weight.
I cry constantly seeing him so pitiful, I've tried all sorts to help for him but he just says i am what i am.
He used to be a big strong man and worked hard on the engines in the biceps, now he is a skeleton, he would walk on hot coals for me, and now i cannot do anything to help him. I did get a CPN to visit but he got angry and told him to leave, what else is there?
I know he has got to want to do it but he doesn't want to?
Hard to Watch
by: Ned Wicker
Heroin addiction, as it advances, is suicide by the installment plan. It's hard to love someone and watch them waste away, and frustrating to know that the addict doesn't want treatment.
Groups like Al-Anon have been helping family members for years, so I would encourage you to seek them out. The web address is:
and you can find a meeting. They are a wonderful source for help and support. You can try to talk to your brother, but he he probably won't listen. Al-anon will teach you how to avoid enabling his addiction in any way but also how to continue to support him. You'll learn how to love your brother but also how to HATE his addiction.
Give Al-Anon a call.
