Meditation and Heroin Addiction Recovery

My journey in recovery from alcohol and drug abuse has been by no means a straight line. This is my third attempt to get clean, and there were times in my life when I never thought that recovery was possible. I’ve been to individual therapy, residential heroin addiction treatment programs (9 times), outpatient groups, and 12-step groups. You name it, and I’ve tried it.

I’ve participated in a range of different services with varying levels of commitment, sometimes enthusiastically and sometimes in order to avoid yet another trip to the county jail. In the past, each attempt to get clean ended in failure. The consequences would pile up, and the pain would become so great that I would eventually tuck my tail between my legs and make a call for help.
