I made it

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

I look at three of my children. I see friends overdose by the grace of God there go I. Have been removed from a job because of a background check. Can not donate blood or some parts to give life after I am gone.

Do you have a message for the Shatterproof community?

Fight with knowledge. Learn who you can trust and share with. Rise Up.

After 40some odd yrs. I wrecked my life and my kids then one day a semi almost took my life in Toledo. Called caseworker at unison went to Serenity Haven. Now I have 4 years of recovery. But heroin did not leave me unscarred: I have Hep-C, liver cancer. I rise up because I have my CDCA an PEER Support license certification. I Rise Up you cant see my walk if you look at me I rise because I fight for the next struggling person. I RISE UP. Phyllis J.
