Reliance on a substance to get through the day is seen more and more often nationwide. About 10% of the population is found to have, or used to have, a debilitating problem with drugs or alcohol. Whether it is an illegal street drug, a trip to the corner liquor store, or a doctor’s prescription, the grip of these chemicals can trap an individual in an ongoing cycle of dependence. Many believe alcohol to be a safe alternative, but withdrawal from alcohol is amongst the most severe. It has some of the longest detoxification times and is one of only two substances that can be lethal if stopped suddenly. Prescription pills are often grouped into a more socially accepted arena as well. However, prescription painkillers where the number one cause of fatal overdoses for many years in the United States. They have only recently been surpassed by a resurgence in the popular use of Heroin.

Christine Walton started her life with a lot of promise. After graduating Center Moriches High School in the top six of her class she was offered a full academic scholarship to Hunter College. While attending college Christine began dating a young man who was selling marijuana and other drugs. “It progressed to me trying other drugs and just partying all the time. Then I was involved in the selling too. It just escalated.” Walton was arrested soon after for possession of marijuana, a “slap on the wrist” as she said, and the first in what was to become many.
“By October my drug use had escalated into Heroin. That was the worst decision I could have made. It just sucks you in and becomes you whole life. Once I tried heroin that’s all I did. My daily life just revolved around it.” As her use gained center stage in her life, everything else became neglected. She failed out of Hunter and moved home to begin classes at community college. This also didn’t last long and Christine soon dropped out. Her mother became suspicious and soon found empty bags of heroin in her room. She insisted her daughter go to rehab, but Christine refused. “Right away I said I don’t need it. My initial reaction was that I could do it on my own.”
Christine, still on probation, failed a drug test and was court mandated to a rehabilitation facility. She violated her probation again while attending rehab, and began years of a cycle of institutions, arrests, jails, and rehabs. Six years later she was once again on probation and still maintaining her drug habits when a probation officer made a surprise visit to her home. “I ended up admitting everything, that I had been using. I told them I really needed help. I was at the point where my lifestyle was so stressful that it was a relief to just tell them the truth.”
Today Christine is doing well. She has rekindled many of her past relationships with her friends and is once again living with her family in Center Moriches. She is gainfully employed and plans on returning to school. “It’s awesome.” She said. “It’s such a good feeling to finally be on this path. Many people end up losing their lives to this, I knew I was not far if I continued. I got to a point where I said I can’t keep doing this. I want to live again.”
Christine Walton, fortunately, had a happy ending. For far too many the ending is much more severe. Christine had been through jails, institutions, and misery. This story never has to repeat itself. Others never need to live it as well. There is hope for anyone. Please call today
