Thank you for reaching out and asking me your question. There are many ways to treat depression and drug addiction. If you don't do anything, it can get worse, and we don't want that. I think the first step is acceptance and realizing that you WANT change, the only change will come from YOU. There's things you can do to substitute or turn to any time you feel weak or like you'll fall back to the drugs. If you can't talk to your family, please talk to a friend, an adviser at school, or someone at your church. There are so many people in your same position and you are NOT alone. You can and will overcome this and I want to encourage you to reach out and connect so you don't feel alone in this journey. You are loved. <3
