From the Alliance


I am chemically dependent. It started when I was young dipping into my father’s prescription medicine. Later in my teenage years I suffered injuries that led to prescription opiates. I suffered a back injury that left me with chronic pain thank goodness for methodone Clinic. The problem is I don’t have insurance and can’t afford it. I am working in program now and successfully doing it it is very hard for me to afford it is $420 a month and I am having a tough time having to pay child support and monthly bills as well. But I tend to continue to be sober and work the program because it’s the most important thing in my life at this point. The program helps me bye providing me with counseling and tools to make me a productive part of society.
