Hey, my name is Megan. My fiancé’s name is Jim... before we met each other a little over 3 years ago we both already had severe opioid addictions on our own. (Pills) We actually met during a drug deal (of course right? How romantic! Not lol) but we fell head over heels for each other. We now have the most beautiful, most perfect incredible miracle that we call our daughter. Our daughter always has more than what she needs. She never goes without. However, since she was born we have been using heroin all day every day... and not just heroin but a little crank too... now I feel like we might even be addicted to both?! Right now though my main concern is getting away from dope... me and my fiancé are like the same person but in male and female forms. We feed off each other non stop. If one of us says they want to try being good and getting off s*** the other comes up with some reason why now isn’t a good time to stop or whatever and vice versa. We are enabling each other, feeding off each other... but we really do love each other and our baby girl more than anything! And We want to be able to stay together as a family. Is it possible for us to both recover? Together?

Hoping you are making out alright.

There's a saying that two dead batteries don't start a car. Also as far as I know no rehab will take a couple into treatment together. For good reasons.

However there's couples that do make it in the long haul once they've both done the work seperately to get clean.

Thinking of you and your little family. Know people care.
