Sarah Alford: Overcoming Addiction
After losing her father in 2007, Sarah Alford turned to drugs and alcohol to attempt to numb the pain of her loss. Her addiction grew from alcohol and marijuana to the use of illicit drugs. Realizing that she had an uncontrollable force and desire to get high, she reached out for help. Alford says that her recovery was possible through first her honesty with herself about her addiction, her willingness to humble herself and ask for help, having a sponsor, doing the step program, attending meetings, having a Sober Support Network and having fun. Today she shares that there is no magical cure and everyday remains a struggle but with determination and the support of those around her, she remains sober. Her road to recovery has not been an easy one, but it is an inspiration to all those who struggle with addictions.
