(Portland, OR)

Dear To whom it may concern,

Hello, My name is Natalie. I’m 17 years old and I live in Portland, OR off of Powell BLVD not to far from Downtown Portland.

I was just browsing the internet about opiate use and Heroin addiction because I myself suffer from a Heroin addiction and I’m trying to quit and get clean. And I’m all bunched up and tense because some people think that I quit and I’m clean. So i just really wanna get clean so I am for sure telling the truth all the time again and I wanna fix my disease.

Running out of money completely and it’s time to just stop messing around and get my life together. By looking at this site and writing you this note/comment I was hoping you guys would have counselors or something of some sort, people to talk to when I think about using.

I have a-lot of support. But not that much since a-lot of people think i quit using a while ago. I don’t know what to do I’m stuck. I NEED HELP! NOW! Please!!!

I’m trying to get my GED at outside in and this heroin addiction is interfering with everything.. AND RUINING MY LIFE! and Chances at everything. I’m finally asking for help.

It would be GREAT to hear from someone. Thanks! Have a nice morning/evening.

Living a double life

Dear Natalie,

It sounds like you are living two different lives. You say people think you are off heroin, but you are still using. You want to quit. You realize you have a problem and this is good, but you don’t feel you can move forward because of what some others might think.

What would happen, Natalie, if they knew you were using because you came out into the open and sought treatment? I think you might be surprised what matters and what doesn’t matter. The most important thing is for you to get better.

It is possible to get clean, but you need to make some important moves to give yourself the opportunity to succeed. First of all, bring it into the open and quit lying about it. If you have support, let them support you. Let go of all the garbage you are holding on to and seek treatment. Are your parents fully aware of what’s happening to you, or is there any other family there for you?

Do you have a safe place to live and can you get away from the drug culture and those who are supplying you with the poison? You need to get away and come into the light. The darkness of the drug culture is the road to death.

Alcoholics Anonymous has many drug users in its membership. That is a good organization to turn to, because they can get you with the right people to give you the emotional support you need. Work the 12 steps, find a sponsor and learn how you can help others and the program can work for you.

Also, Al-anon is an excellent organization for your family and friends to go to, so they can learn what they need to do to help you.

There is a way out and you can get clean. You are 17 and you’re whole life is ahead of you, so there is no reason to dwell on any past bad choices, jut look forward and allow others to love you and help you get healthy.
