Overdoses in Cuyahoga County

While others focused on the festivities of Super Bowl weekend, the news updates on the number of accidental overdoses seemed to climb.  WEWS reported that there were twenty-five overdoses resulting in fourteen fatalities.  In January, there were 25 fatal overdoses.  Having read a few comments, I wanted to share a story from a few years ago. I was preparing a press release related to the increasing use of heroin and  I interviewed a client that was 52 days sober.  I asked her how she responds when someone says that addiction is a choice rather than a disease.  She said that when she was growing up, she dreamed of being a Nurse or a Teacher, I did not choose to be a heroin addict.

Like so many that are addicted to heroin she was given opioids to reduce pain during her recuperation period following a car accident.  Once the physician withdrew the prescription medications her cravings intensified.  She was consumed with thoughts of the feelings and  she would become violently ill.  She began borrowing medications from friends and family members and then heroin, a less expensive option, became the next step.  That was three years ago.  She continues to work for sustained recovery.

The Women’s Recovery Center is a state licensed gender specific outpatient treatment facility. Our clinical staff incorporates principals of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous to reflect the impact of addiction.  One client gave permission to use her First Step while keeping her identity anonymous.
