Born into Addiction

Heather Parker
Tell us about your (or your loved one's) recovery journey. What has been the most rewarding part?

I was born into a family of addicts. Both my parents were addicted. I grew up with all the instability and dysfunction. I started using drugs when I was 14. I have experienced all the bad that comes with drug use. When I was 23 I decided I wanted to live a different life. I found my way into recovery and ever since then I have worked every day to be a productive member of society and live a sober life.

Do you have a message for the Shatterproof community?

Don’t give up. If I can do it so can you.
