My 21 year old daughter has been addicted to heroine for almost 4 yrs now. She has sought out a few different ways of treatment, including a 30 day rehab program, but continues to relapse. She is ready to change people, places, and things, and wants to attend a long term treatment program, but insurance will not pay for it. The program is $500 to reserve a bed, which I do have, then bi weekly payments that add up to $3,000 a month. I am a single mother, I have an 8 yr old (who believes his sister is the greatest person in the world), and a 3 yr old son. I don't want to ever have to explain that their sister is in heaven, which will happen someday if she can't get the treatment that she needs. She was a responsibile girl, who would get mad if she was even late for school, much less miss a day! I don't ever remember even having to ground her, but she met a boy, fell in love, and wanted to know what it was about this drug that made him love it so much, she wanted to bond with him on another level, and never believed a drug would control her life because she was a responsible person who had self control. It has made her loose her friends, her family, her relationship with her brothers, because I will not allow her to be part of our lives as long as she continues to live this way. She has stolen so much money from me, I almost lost our home. I had to kick her out. She came to me, confessed all, left her boyfriend because he refused to get help, changed her number, and is with me while we find her a rehab that will help not only her addiction, but help her find her self worth again. We found a place 2 hours away that is on a farm, that provides a lot of outdoor activities (which is where she has always been most happiest), hiking, horses, nature walks, and outdoor meetings. It's where she can grow and find that person she was before heroine, how to laugh again, find peace and happiness again, where she can grow surrounded by things she loves, and become the role model for her brothers she wants to be. She told me that ahe wants to get through this, so she can show her brothers that anything is possible, you just have to want it enough. We live in Louisville Kentucky, and there is heroine going around that's killing people left and right. I cry everyday, worried for my daughter, and I try to believe that God will take care of her, that he has a plan. It just gets hard sometimes, especially when her see her look like death itself. She has a lot of family support, and I truly believe she is ready to change her life. I started to think this day wouldn't come, because she always would fight when she heard 'she needed a long term program', but now she is asking to go to one. God has answered my prayers, and as a mother, I will do whatever it takes to save my daughter, and help her anyway I can, as long as she is willing to do the work. Please, even if it's just information, help me be able to help my daughter. I can't imagine anything ever happening to one of my children, I would die right along with them. They are what I live for, my whole world, and all I focus my life on. I don't date, I don't go out, I spend all my time, outside of work, with my kids. Thank you for your time and reading my story. God Bless! Robin Winningham
