When you have an addiction, it can feel like nothing is in your control. It’s scary, it’s tough, and it’s even worse if you don’t know when or how you’ll be able to fuel it. We at Direct2Recovery understand all of that and sympathize greatly. However, we also recognize the importance of explaining how serious drug addictions can be. Addictions are tough on you and your family. Penalties of an addiction can include going to jail, paying a fine, and destroying close relationships.
