Save my life
Organized by: Rita Elston
I am a heroin addict of 12 years (I'm 29),I'm also an alcoholic for the past two years, plus I use crack a few times per week. I am at the end of my rope. I have been calling rehabs and detoxes for the last 2 weeks and have gotten nowhere because I don't have money or insurance. The very few places who will take me on a charity care bases have waiting lists so long that I can't wait... I could be dead or in jail by then. I've tried and tried and tried and at this point the only word I can use to describe how I feel is exhausted. Physically emotionally spiritually exhausted. I need a miracle I need some kind of outside help because nothing in my life is working and I'm constantly in a state of depression where all I do is lay in bed. I want to escape reality because it's so depressing. I need to learn how to be an adult I need to learn coping skills. My father died two years ago and that's when things really got bad as far as my addiction and depression and anxiety. I know there are many addicts out there who need help and I'm not trying to say I'm better than them but I do need help NOW. Even if you can't donate if you could point me in the right direction to get very very cheap or free treatment I would be forever indebted. In fact, once I get clean I plan forever ever help those in need. I would like to get involved in politics and the law and help change how things are to better benefit those of us in need. GOOD TREATMENT SHOULD NOT ONLY BE ATTAINABLE BY THE WEALTHY!
