Substance Abuse: Not Otherwise Specified. That’s what they said. What did it mean? Were they trying to tell me I wasn’t an alcoholic? I wanted to be quantified, qualified, and stereotyped. I wanted someone to tell me what was wrong with me.

I never asked. At the end of the day, I didn’t need anyone to tell me what I already knew. I was dying of a disease with many faces but all were the face of addiction.

Today I have over ten years of recovery in my program of choice. By writing about my experience, I hope to reach others struggling with all types of addiction.

This is Recovery: Not Otherwise Specified.
