Hello all,

My name is Dan and I'm new to the forum but not subs. I've had been a user for roughly 10 years prior to finding subs. Up until this month I had tried rehab, even with a support system, NA , and a counselor and it didn't work because I relapsed. I never truly realized how powerful my addiction actually was. Then I found subs a few years back on the streets and started self medicating on them, then i enrolled into a program but couldn't afford it for more than a few months only because I was hiding my addiction from family and friends and didn't want to use my insurance where my wife could find out. This worked until I ran out of usable income,So I fell back into using until this month when I came clean again and I enrolled into a program the right way, and now I'm Super glad I did. The support I received was more than I ever expected from everyone, I was worried about loosing everything I had worked for in my life because I fell back into using,but everyone was amazing and understands it is a disease and not just something that I'm wanting to do.

Enough of the backstory for now, I just wanted to say hello and I hope that I can learn from the forum as well as give usable information and help to others. Thanks for listening and hope to meet some great people soon.

--Dan J.
