This is the story of Ms. Lee Walsh a recovering drug addicted. She started taking pills when she was a sophomore in high school due to struggling with depression and anxiety. Throughout her years she became hooked on Opanas (is an opioid pain medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic. Opana is used to treat moderate to severe pain. The extended-release form of this medicine is for around-the-clock treatment of severe pain.), because it made her feel better due to being a powerful drug , then when Heroin hit the streets she started taking those because it is stronger and cheaper. She used drugs to cope they made her feel better because she was suffering like most of us do , but some turn to drugs. The addiction never bothered her until she found out she was pregnant with her son and it changed her life for the better. When she finally decided to get clean it was tough for her because the father of her son sold drug didn't feel strong enough to kick him out. Lee had a tough time getting clean due to being pregnant at the time, she couldn't find a bed in the rehab center which made it even tougher. When she would try to communicate with people who are in a position to help others they never listened to her until she ended up in a halfway house. Now being clean for two years and raising her son she has a better support system with her father and is on to better things.
