The Connection Between Homelessness and Addiction
“Once the heroin and crack addiction turned me into a homeless prostitute, I pretty much gave up on life. Laying there in a bed just staring into this mirror, I would sometimes see the beautiful little girl I used to be looking back at me,” recalls Lisa S. in her story at HeroesInRecovery.com. “One morning, I reached out to her and decided to save her.”
Such is the sordid relationship between substance abuse and homelessness, often bonded together by woundedness and despair.
