Addicted to Sobriety

Welcome to Addicted to Sobriety. My name is Rae, and I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. My mom and I decided to create this website to provide people with information about substance abuse, addiction, and treatment, and to give people a place to share their stories or struggles. I think the only way for society as a whole to become more tolerant and understanding of addiction is to talk about it openly. I share many personal experiences of my own, with the hope that it lessens some of the guilt and shame surrounding alcoholism and addiction.



In the About Me section, you can find out more me, and you will find a link to my story if you wish to read about my experience with addiction and recovery.

On our website, you can also read the thoughts and stories of some of my family members. The impact of substance abuse is far-reaching. For almost every addict, there is a brother or sister, a father or mother, a spouse or child, a grandparent or aunt ...that is experiencing intense suffering also.

I have always been told that I should give back and try to help the struggling addict or alcoholic, and that is the main purpose of this website. It is also important to us to provide support for the loved ones of someone who may be struggling with addiction or substance abuse.

Aside from sharing our own experiences, we also have several places on the website where you, the reader, are strongly encouraged to write in and share your experiences with us and your fellow readers. Anyone can write their story: those in recovery, those hoping to be in recovery, family members and friends ...anyone!

We also have areas where you can submit questions. Feel free to ask anything related to problems with alcohol and drugs, treatment, recovery, etc.. We will post your comments and questions (you can write in anonymously if you wish) so that others are helped as well by your participation. We take your privacy very seriously. (Please see our privacy policy.) If you have a question you need answered and you don't want it posted at all, even anonymously, that is fine too - you are still more than welcome to write in and ask!


 We would also love for you to join our Facebook Page and Follow Us on Twitter!


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit our website, and we hope that you will keep coming back!
