Lori started using Meth in her early 20’s, and was arrested right before her 40th birthday. She woke up in jail realizing that she was going to miss another holiday season with her family and realized something had to change. Once she came to this realization, she flushed her meth and took her first step towards recovery.
Since being sober, Lori has gone back to school at 42 years old, where she met her now husband. She currently works in the field of addiction recovery where she feels like she is able to give back some of the resources that she was given. She is also a Grandma and has repaired her relationship with her son.
Since becoming sober… I got to repair my relationship with my son, and that’s just amazing.
That was the first time in my life where I was like, I’ve gotta do something, something’s gotta change.
I left my addiction right where I left it years before.meth addict.
