Florida has made strides in the battle against opioid and prescription drug abuse throughout the state.
“I have over 17 years drug free and am fiercely proud of that, and protective of my sobriety. I continue to work on myself to be solid in my recovery and in my personal and professional growth.”
“I can remember it as clear as day: it was 1970. Pizza cost 15 cents. I was fifteen years old, in Junior High School, and this guy I knew came up to me with a little white bag and gave me something to sniff. As soon as I took it I was hooked.”
“In recovery,” says Joey, “My whole life has changed. Before, nobody wanted me around. Today, everyone does. What a blessing!”
“So many people think marijuana can’t be an addiction, but it can. Because when you smoke weed like I did, and you feel like you can’t have fun without smoking, that’s you depending on weed to have fun. And dependence on a drug, that’s addiction.”
