Hi. I posted so I thought I'd introduce myself. I am the daughter of a drug addict. He was my dad and my parents divorced when I was little, but we did see the drugs because he was always high when we were around them. My mom didn't know that until later, she wouldn't have sent us with him if she had known, but we were too young to know it was wrong. He killed himself when I was 11.

I soon will be working with recovering addicts and their families, and am interested in helping others where I can.

Welcome, I am glad you are here and cant wait to get to know you better!
