Brandon was addicted to meth and opiates. He dropped out of school at 15 and sold marijuana. Brandon’s addiction kept progressing and everything went down hill quick. He lost everything. After serving some jail time for possession of meth and methadone he immediately got a DWI. He continued to sell drugs and was in a very toxic relationship. His addiction progressed into him doing 3.5 grams of meth daily. After attempting suicide his grandmother intervened and he ended up in jail again right before Christmas. Something happened to Brandon this time, he wanted to go back to treatment. After pleading with the judge he ended up back in treatment. After completing treatment he decided the best route to go was for him to get into a halfway house. Brandon started setting goals and accomplishing them. His life started to get better in recovery. He got his GED, a full time job, his house back, a car, his license back, etc. Brandon still struggles, which is normal. Recovery isn’t all ‘rainbows and butterflies’ but he has a support network to lean on. Today, Brandon is free and a great example of what recovery is all about.
