As a social worker, mother of two, and wife of an addict struggling with a heroin addiction I understand the pain, process, and pride it takes to reach out to others. When I first learned of my husband’s addiction I felt incredibly lost and alone. I was too embarrassed to reach out to my friends or family thinking what would they think of me for allowing this person into my life. However, as a professional I knew the importance of making sure I had the best support system available to help my family and I get through what has been the darkest moment of our lives. Stop the High is aimed at helping all those affected by the current heroin epidemic. My hope is that through this online forum those suffering from addiction and those who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction will find comfort, support, resources, and knowledge to end this horrible disease.
