One of the biggest challenges in life is to get over a life-sapping addiction. Substance abuse can destroy individuals and families. Although it is not easy for anyone to get over an addiction some brave hearts made their minds and di what they had to.
‘The Addict’s Diary’ is a page dedicated to sharing the “stories, failures, successes, and lessons we have learned throughout our path to recovery in order to inspire others suffering from addiction.” We decide to bring you stories about their journeys. So scroll down to appreciate their efforts and dedication.
The Addict’s Diary’ project was founded by Kevin Alter. He struggled with substance abuse for more than a decade. From the age of 17 till the age of 27 it was a tough time for him to deal with it. “When I got clean, I noticed that there was a general misconception of the addict. I wanted to change that, so I did my best to humanize addiction,” Kevin explains on his website.
“I wanted people to see us for who we really are. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I wanted to break the stigma, inspire people, educate students, and save lives all with the stroke of a keyboard.”
So Kevin made a decision to take the reader along with him on his journey. “I put my all into it and it worked. Yes, I have been a client at over 29 inpatient treatment centers in my life.”
