Angela

Addiction is not consistent. It doesn’t always look the same. It’s not confined to one drug, social class, or duration of time. Some people get sober; some people don’t. Some are in an ongoing limbo between sobriety and active use.

Angela’s battle with addiction has been a roller coaster. There have been countless ups and downs. Angela is well aware of the stigma surrounding addiction and she still agreed to put her life on display to help others understand. I can’t express how thankful I am to her for opening my eyes and allowing me to pass these lessons on to others. She’s been so open and raw in sharing her story. I hope viewers can try to keep an open mind about such a tough topic.

Angela made it very clear that she doesn’t want to paint her family members as bad people. The way she speaks of her family is reflective of her views and feelings in the past, not the present. Angela’s relationship with her family has improved and they care about each other very much.

  1. Drug addiction can ruin a life faster than anything else I can think of. It affects not just the addict but all those around them. Think of it as a ripple effect much like skipping a flat stone on a smooth pond. I admire anyone that can overcome a hard core addiction. I also despise those that sell drugs. Please stay sober Angela and show others that there is a way out of that nightmare.
