"I have struggled with pain pill addiction for almost 9 years. Quitting was not an option for me. I tried in the past and could not handle the awful, horrific withdrawals. I would become so sick that I felt as if I were dying. I could not function without the opiods being in my system. I knew just as soon as I could get a few pills in my system, I would feel "all right" again. I was tired of living this kind of life; spending all my money, pawning items that really meant something to me, lying to my family....it didn't matter. When I didn't have pain pills, the only thing that did matter was getting more; regardless of the consequences. My desperation took control! This was not the life I wanted, but I was stuck and felt hopeless. I was trapped with no way out".
"That was then......it's now June 25, 2015 and I have been clean for 68 days!!!!!!!! I found hope on August 19, 2011 when I went to see Dr. Oyebanjo-Popoola. I thank God for her and for my treatment team; Mark and Kristi. Together we have gone far, simply taking one day at a time. They have given me my life back!! How about you? Are you ready to take your life back?
Hope to see you soon." -Sincerely, Staying clean and loving life!
