Substance abuse is so widespread affecting millions of people in the United Sates alone. This not only wreaks havoc among the lives of those directly involved but also the families, friends and people around the person suffering from the addiction. An addict cannot simply turn off the urge or the need to take in the substance, because the chemicals in most of these substances have already caused a disruption in the person’s brain and behavior.

Is there a way out?

Yes. Once you have fallen victim to addiction, you can still find a way out. It’s not the end of everything as proven by Dr. Siamak Afshar, a State of California Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor II (CADC II) and is the founder and C.E.O. of Transforming Life sober Living Center, Inc. and Being sober since 1983, he is living proof that recovery and a new life after addiction is possible.

“At the age of 14, I was taking opium. I think at 16, I was taking heroin. And at the age of 20, I came to the US. Since I couldn’t smoke heroin here, I started to inject it. For about eight or nine years, I continued injecting it. Actually injecting it started here, in Iran, I was only smoking it through “zarvaraghi” (a way to smoke the drug in Iran).”
