Debbie’s rock bottom was worse than anything she could have imagined. Fortunately, she had somewhere to turn:
“The worst moment of my addiction was when I was evicted from my apartment because of my drug use—I ended up living on the street. By then, I had already been to detox at the local hospital three times, but I had never made it to residential treatment. During my fourth trip to detox, it got to the point where I knew that when I left the hospital I would have nowhere to go. Luckily, I saw a poster with a phone number for Phoenix House Exeter Center, which back then was called Marathon House. I had no money, but I called—and Phoenix House saved my life by letting me in.”
