Sharing Resources That Saved Me

I was a victim of domestic violence growing up. I truly believed that abuse equaled love. This warped way of thinking led to my incessant need to please, feelings of inadequacy, lack of coping skills, and ultimately propelled my addiction. Abuse and addiction are both heavily stigmatized and this led me to suffer in silence. I finally reached out for help and I am so grateful I did. I have almost 3 years sober today and I am actively involved in trauma therapy as well as my AA community. This guide was super helpful for me when I first sought out recovery and I was looking to change my life around. If anyone is struggling with substance abuse or a victim of domestic violence I strongly recommend this resource:
