Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

update on heroin overdose
I do not know how many people are aware of this,it shocked me but got me thinking. Heroin or the cut used I not the ain cause of overdosing. Most heroin addicts are using benzos with it,to try and he the high feeling. Things like soma et. Are used with it which is what created the "nod". I was not aware of this until recently. Also I have been asked to be part of group to to before legislature to try to pass a law to protect those hat are on probation or parole in the event of an overdose. The law would protect them from jail in the event of needing emergency care(ems services or er) . They would be able to get treatment without. Charges As long as what the had was for personal use. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, I need them. A lot has been coin on the past two days. I am stating An AwRenezs program At he high school,and I am going to be featured in our large local paper net week.I need prayers for wisdom and to speak only what needs to be said..
