After being arrested for possession of heroin, I found myself in Mecklenburg County’s drug court. I started treatment several months after that, and I was eager to learn how and why I became addicted to heroin.

Because of my heroin addiction, I first had to be detoxed from methadone, and I attended 12-step meetings during this time. I did not know that I had a disease prior to coming to Anuvia.

During my treatment program I started to learn how to recognize my triggers and learn more about my disease. I feel that the people at Anuvia saved my life and gave me a new outlook for the future. I plan to continue staying clean and sober by going to 12 step meetings, working with my sponsor and doing service work. I want to give back what was so freely given to me!

I strongly recommend this program to other people seeking recovery. It saved my life!
