I lived traveling, when it was not for work it was for fun with a life drowned in drugs and alcohol that I felt was dimming me day by day. I needed more and more to feel normal. Luckily with the help of my family and some lifelong friends I could recognize that something was not right and accept a treatment. My name is Susana, I am 38 years old and I am Uruguayan. On March 10, 2010 I traveled to Miami to receive help and to be able to keep clean of all types of drugs since I had tried it alone and never had. When I found out that it was a disease, I understood that, like most diseases, I would need a treatment. I started with group, family and individual therapies with Hugo and Luz Helena that helped me understand my situation and guided me on the path of knowing myself. Today I am clean and I have a better life than I could plan for me. Recover the relationship with my family and my lifelong friends. While I was in treatment, I met some exceptional people that until today I consider them a family since we are united by a very large area that is the road to recovery. I have no words to thank Hugo and Luz Helena for all the support they have given me and the support they give me each time I visit Miami and for giving me the opportunity to rebuild a happy life.
