Letter From A Master Addict To Dangerous Drugs

I came to goodbye letter to drugs Recovery on court orders stemming from charges due to not taking medications for my mental health. I was fearful of what my future held and what that would look like. I have never been to a dual diagnosis treatment program before, and I didn’t know what to expect. With the help of Hathaway Recovery’s team, I was able to build a strong foundation for my recovery that is vital to me and my family. I am forever grateful for the treatment at Hathaway Recovery. As a Trauma Informed Therapist I was contracted by Dina , the Owner to provide additional Trauma Informed Counseling. Working with Hathaway has been magical.


I didn’t even care that you had zero concerns about what happened to me. Had I overdosed and died, you would have moved on to someone else in less than a heartbeat. But it didn’t matter; I was the person you had chosen at that moment. The first step is to know that your questions and feelings are normal.

I don’t miss the last 6 treatment programs I went to, one leaving me with extreme PTSD. I don’t miss falling down the stairs and almost breaking my neck. I don’t miss getting onto the highway going the wrong way at 3 a.m. I don’t miss being absent from holidays with my family because I was too sick to go. I don’t miss waking up on my kitchen floor from a blackout and wondering how I got there.

I know the hurt you harbor both from things you’ve done and things done to you. I know the regret you have for continuing to give in every single time when you fight yourself and SWEAR, “Never again. This is the LAST time.” I know the longing for yesterday that tugs on your heart every day. You can lie to everybody around you. You can even lie to yourself until you look in the mirror. That’s when the memories of everything thing you have ever done come back. You remember every time you ripped somebody off.

Farewell Letter to My Addiction

I don’t know how drugs heighten the joy of happiness. But I do know that my life would be very monochromatic without its peaks and valleys. At first, I was afraid to start going back to my groups again. I called one of my sponsors and she was so happy to hear my voice. She welcomed me back with open arms and no judgment at all. I don’t have to sacrifice anything.

I know I won’t be able to have anything positive in my while we are together. That said, I know I cannot blame you entirely for the way things have gone.
