Addiction & Recovery
By: Reilly Johnson
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University reports:
“The prevention and reduction of the risky use of addictive substances and the treatment of addiction, in practice, bear little resemblance to the significant body of evidence-based practices that have been developed and tested;* indeed only a small fraction of individuals receive interventions or treatment consistent with scientific knowledge about what works.”
My name is Reilly Johnson and I’m founder of The Opiate Freedom Center . I created this website to empower and give hope to those struggling with addiction.
I know what it’s like to be addicted and I know how hard it is to recover. I know how hard it is to see family and loved ones struggle and suffer continuously, while slowly hurting their lives. I’ve had family and friends in and out of jail, in rehabs, and have lost some of my dearest friends to opioid addiction.
Believe me, I understand your pain and your struggle.
I understand how hard it is to truly recover. I know and identify with the constant struggle with oneself. But fortunately for me after almost 8 years of drug abuse I was able to quit.
It took massive amounts of trial and error and lot of blood, sweat and tears. And through many personal experiences and long study I discovered tricks, hacks and principles to follow for success. Which is why I created this site, The Opiate Freedom Center. I’m here to share practical and helpful information on ways to quit, ease withdrawals, detox effectively and end addiction.
Most of us are seeking answers to the same questions:
- What compels someone to finally quit after years of trying and failing?
- How can I quickly relieve opiate withdrawal pain and speed my recovery?
- Are rehabs and recovery programs effective? Do they even work? What works best?
- Who can you trust? Who really has your best interests in mind? Is it friends, doctors, counselors, family?
With nearly 10 years of first hand experiences, studying, testing and talking to others I have done my best to come up with answers to these ever-pressing questions.
We’re here to be your friend.
So read the articles that might be able to help you. If you have questions, please ask us, we’d love to hear from you! You can email me at [email protected].
I wish you the best and hope to speak with you soon!
