Hi Dr. Junig, my name is Jane Levi. I have been reading this blog for a couple hours now, and have been searching the whole site trying to figure out how to email you. So far no such luck, and I hope you don’t mind me writing this to you in the form of a comment on a completely unrelated subject. Anyway, I wanted to thank you, sincerely, for the understanding and insight you’ve provided to so many people, myself included. I’m 19 years old and have been struggling to keep myself clean for the past several months. I’ve battled a heroin addiction since the age of 17, and in a way I feel that it’s grown into my identity as I’ve become an adult. That’s not something very many people can wrap their minds around, which seems to make a lot of the hard work that’s put into staying off of drugs go unnoticed, and unappreciated. I realize that the road to recovery is long, and one that you tread upon from the inside of yourself, not based on the recognition from others. However, I do believe that it helps a great deal to have someone in your corner. Thank you for all your help and for seeing that we aren’t just “addicts”, but people who have lost their way somewhere along the line, and for genuinely caring that we are now on the path to a better life. Please don’t stop helping, you’re doing a wonderful job!

Please don't use your real name unless you want it to show. Thanks for commenting!!
