Journey To Recovery
When I found out my daughter had an opiate addiction, I was blind-sided. Here is a girl, 24 years old, she graduated from Penn State with a 3.85 average, she’s a talented cook, and always has a smile on her face. She was the last person anyone would even suspect would be an opioid addict. I was terrified for her, for my family. But the whole time, even when she was at her lowest, I knew my little girl was still in there. I hope my story can serve as inspiration for those people who are looking at their kids, wondering how to take the pain away. You can break the cycle of addiction. You can get your child back.
I Got My Daughter Back. She’s Been
Given A Second Chance.
I Got My Daughter Back. She’s Been Given A Second Chance.
My daughter’s addiction began to develop, in college, when she was prescribed medications for her anxiety and panic attacks. However, it wasn’t until she had a major surgery and was prescribed Percocet, that her addiction began to snowball. She began to spiral out of control and eventually moved back home. We visited a behavioral health center and we were told her options were either Vivitrol or a Suboxone® clinic. So, I called The COAT Center of Pittsburgh. They were very understanding and set the appointment for that day, so we just kept driving. I remember my daughter saying, “Mom, do I have to do this? Can I go tomorrow?” And I replied, “No we’re not going to wait until tomorrow, we’re going right now, they’re waiting for us.”
Tough Love Was My Only Option.
When we got to The COAT Center of Pittsburgh, the staff immediately welcomed us and made us feel comfortable. They took my daughter in, did their initial consultation, gave us her Suboxone® prescription, and we immediately went to pick it up. When we got home with the prescription, I literally had to hold her arms and watch her put that sublingual strip under her tongue. She did it, and as soon as the strip had dissolved she looked at me and said, “Mom, I actually feel pretty good.” That was like music to my ears. She hasn’t relapsed since, and she’s on half a strip now. I am so grateful to The COAT Center of Pittsburgh for giving my child a second chance at life.
