    • 8. Adriane’s Story
    • 9. As a child I was treated unkindly and told I was worthless.
      I first attempted suicide at age 13.
    • 10. As an adult, I married, and for 19 years, lived with emotional abuse and physical and sexual violence.
      I took my vows seriously and believed “till death do us part”.
      My family never knew.
    • 11.
    • 12. I was paralyzed on my left side. I thought I was having a stroke. The hospital could find nothing physically wrong and referred me to Emergency Services in the MHSA division.
      I was not diagnosed as having a mental illness until I was 38 years old.
    • 13. I have participated in the trauma group, MESA (Mutual Education Support and Advocacy) classes, the medication management
      program and have received
      psychiatric treatment.
      It took me seven years to get well.
    • 14. I came out of that dark hole and want to help others.

      Story
    • 16. I am a 33-year-old man who started to use drugs when I was 15.
      Until recently, my life was defined by my habit.
    • 17. My habit was out of control. I was breaking the law to support a $300 a day heroin addiction.
      My probation officer referred me to the City of Virginia Beach’s outpatient day program.
    • 18. For me, recovery was a full-time job.
      At Magic Hollow, I gained many "tools" to succeed.
      I still use them today.
    • 19.
    • 20. Part of my recovery has been to “pay it forward."
      Sometimes, it is as simple as sharing my story, and I appreciate the opportunity to do so.
    • 21.
    • 22. I've been in recovery for about 5 years.
      I got married.
      I have a steady job.
      I buried both my parents.
      I secured my first mortgage.
      I earned my bachelor's degree.
    • 23. All these circumstances, in the past, could and would have caused me to use (heroin). But through God's grace and the lessons learned, I am substance-free.
    • 24. I owe my life to Virginia Beach’s day treatment program.
    • 25. COLLABORATION
    • 26. COMMUNITY
