My family and I are going to dinner with my mother later on this month. I don’t get to see often but I am so blessed to know that she is living life. My mother abused drugs at a point in her life and I feared that I would have to force her to seek substance abuse treatment.
However, after moving 900 miles from her hometown, she was then able to kick the habit. She has been clean for going on ten years. Every moment that I get to spend with her is like a gift.
If you know someone who is abusing drugs or alcohol, please do what you can to help them seek treatment.
