#30 Drug Free Mindset Rehab Interview with Elaine from Modesto

Drug Free Mindset Show

Today we are excited to have Elaine as our guest today.

What do you remember as child growing up and was your life like?

She was with her 2 younger brothers, she had to grow up on her own.

What was the worst thing you remember growing up involving your parents using drugs?

When she was about 8 and she witnessed her parents in the bathroom with friends together. She didn’t know what was going on but knew something was not right because her other friends parents didn’t go the bathroom together.

When did you realize that being an addict was not normal?

About 10 because she would hang out with her friends and stay at their houses a lot. At those houses their parents didn’t do Drugs.

As a child did you ever feel like you were abused mentally physical emotional?

She always felt like she wasn’t important enough to her parents.

When you finally understood that your parents were addicts did it affect your social skills, confidence or self-esteem?

She felt like they loved the drugs more then they loved her.

Have things changed from when you were younger?

Things have changed, her mom has passed away because of the life style she chose to live, and her dad is clean from Heroin and they are building there relationship 

Did you ever have to enter into the system or move away from your parents before you were 18?

She never went into the system, but she lived with her friends from the age of 13 because she felt like she was intruding on her parents

What would you want your parents or other parents to know about how their abuse affected their children?

It makes them feel like you don’t love them and they have to take care of themselves. It is confusing to children to think if their parents can’t take care of me, who will?

Thank you for sharing your story, I know it was probably one of the hardest things you’ve had to do but we hope, parents hearing these types of story think twice and make a change for the better.
