Stories of Addiction

Dec 6, 2018

Whitney is a very attractive, slim, blonde, blue-eyed, white woman; not the typical look associated with severe drug addiction. Whitney had her wisdom teeth removed as a teenager and received Vicodin for the pain. This was her first abuse of opiate drugs and it led her to heroin and meth. For most of the past five years, Whitney has been homeless, living on the streets of Santa Cruz, California. Her addiction caused her to lose several jobs and to steal from homes and stores, where the hardware store became her specialty. Her boyfriend went behind bars for these crimes and got cleaned in jail. When Whitney saw the improvements in his health, she was inspired to get cleaned. Whitney detoxed alone and now lives in the Gault House sober living environment in Santa Cruz, California.
