“I’d finally had enough.”
The descent into addiction is almost always coupled with increasing isolation. I don’t know if the worsening addiction leads to the withdrawal from society or vice versa. I just know that as addicts, we push well-meaning people away because of shame and because they interfere with using. The void created by the loss of human connection is the place where addiction’s most powerful chains are forged.
My experiences have convinced me that human connection, support, and healthy relationships are the lifeblood of recovery. John Volken Academy has saved my life.
