Carla’s Story: Overcoming Addiction and Helping Other Women Do the Same

Carla was once an addict, but now she’s clean and she uses her own experience to help other women through addiction and recovery. After overcoming addiction herself, Carla reconnected with her family, she went back to school, and she now works as the Intake Coordinator at a Rehabilitation Center for Women. Carla is an incredible woman, with an incredible story, who reminds us that – there is always hope.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction, please contact: SAMHSA’s National Helpline

And for more information on Carla’s work, check out New Directions for Women.
