Meagan’s Story: Overcoming Homelessness and Alcoholism, and Giving Hope to Others

Meagan was homeless, living out of a car, and suffering from alcoholism. Her family said they were done with her, her friends were all in jail or prison… and Meagan felt as though she had lost everything and was losing hope. Her last hope was to Google treatment centers and she ended up at New Directions for Women, a treatment center founded by women, run by women, for women suffering from addiction. Meagan is sober and turned her life around, and now she helps other women find hope, happiness, and healing on their road to recovery. This is Meagan’s story.

If you know someone struggling with addiction, please contact SAMHSA.
