It Takes Two

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

My journey started back 11 years ago. I was heavily dependent on drugs and alcohol while touring the world as a young av tech for bands. These drugs and alcohol were especially easy for me to find considering my circumstances. One night, I did a lot of different mixtures when it came to drugs and threw in some alcohol. I was very suicidal. My best friend brought me to a recovery center and got me sober. To this day, he is my guardian angel of 17 years, and I have 11 years under my belt for sobriety. The most rewarding part was I had a best friend that stuck by me, and showed me the world outside of being under the influence. It takes two people, yourself and someone you trust, to get you through this.
