Re: “Battle for InSite Begins”: I had long periods of clean time prior to my relapse in September.
There is a lot of shame in relapse. I found the staff at InSite supportive and caring.
When I reached out for help this time I was (taken) to the on-site detox upstairs. This injection site is so much more than addicts coming in to “shoot up.” They also have a transition house that you can go to after detox. I think InSite saves lives, gives us hope and gives us support. The staff helped save my life.
