Finding help for your addiction
The last straw before calling the Drug Crisis Hotline was perhaps when you woke up to find yourself in a room you didn’t recognize, the floor strewn with trash and human waste. Across the way on a yellow mattress lay a man, or a woman – who could tell – with their eyes closed tight and a needle dangling from their arm, still pushed into the vein. You could hear the rats skittering through the walls, and the smell of urine and feces would have made you throw up had there been anything left in your stomach. If you were lucky, a broken mirror on the wall would have shown an image of you, with sunken eyes and shallow cheeks and all of the color washed from your skin. The image of you belonged in this picture, but it doesn’t have to be.
Drug Crisis Hotline
Help is at the other end of the phone if only you would pick yourself up and call. The Drug Crisis Hotline is staffed with caring professionals who know what you need and how best to get you assistance. But, the first step is to pick up the phone and call. This indicates an awareness of the disease that will always be a part of you, and addiction to drugs that you will struggle against your entire life. The Drug Crisis Hotline will make sure you are safe, and pull you out of the situation you find yourself in. Next, you will have an option to go through detox, where the body is wracked with agonizing pain while it cleanses itself of the toxins eating away at your insides. Insomnia will be the least of your worries during this time, as your body knows a simple hit will make the pain go away. But it’s not going to happen, because being clean and sober takes time and it’s worth every bloody sweat bead running down your forehead. Simply call the Drug Hotline at (888) 628-5602 for help now.
After Calling the Drug Crisis Hotline
Life will never be the same again. For starters, you will be clean and sober, no longer chasing a demon who’s only intention is to hook you as long as possible before discarding you as a tragic over dose victim. AA will become you support, or another peer group therapy situation, where others who have gone through what you have, including that first realization that made you call the Drug Crisis Hotline. You will live a better life, but it first takes making that call.
