Voices for Recovery


Ricky Parker (09/09/2011)

I began my career in addiction seeking pleasure. Over time I found myself running from pain. Isolated and desperate I asked for help. It took me years to get freedom from addiction. I started making progress when I quit denying I had a mental disorder.  Without addressing both problems I didn't really have a chance at recovery. Life is good now, I'm working helping others. I'm confident I can deal with whatever is ahead with my emotions, not drug induced emotions. I'm grateful for all those that were patient, tolerant, and loved me until I could love myself.
