From Meth Addict To Complete Recovery & Happiness

I was an addicted to crystal meth for ten years. I had been to a number of rehabs and consulted with drug/alcohol counselors with no success. On my own I figured out that I was depressed and the 5mg of Zoloft per day prescribed by psychiatrist was not enough. I checked with a pharmacist and increased my daily intake of Zoloft to 100mg. My depression went away and so did my craving for meth. I've never looked back since. I really love my life today.

I give free presentations at various libraries in San Diego, CA to help educate the public on how to heal the psycho, social, and chemical components of addiction. I'm currently living in the PATH/CONNECTIONS housing facility for the homeless here in San Diego, CA.
