My name is Holly Webb
Like many, my story started out being prescribed pain pills. I was on then for a few years for multiple reasons and one day my Dr said here you go as he handed me my last script going from 3 a day to nothing. I was a mother of 4 BEAUTIFUL children at that point and couldn't be sick.
I decided to use heroin which was easily available and went down hill from there. My boyfriend and I used and ended up losing our children to DCPP. It felt like I had died , I couldn't breath, what was the point in living anymore? My babies weren't with me anymore! I let that lead me into the darkness instead of looking for strength. Eventually I decided to get methadone and when I started using it properly it was a blessing.
I found out I was pregnant and decided that God let this happen for a reason and that this pregnancy was my saving grace and was going to be what I needed to continue on the right path . Methadone saved me and allowed me to continue to be there for my other children as well as my new baby. I used to be ashamed and now I feel empowered to be a survivor and want to share my story to help others see the light that took me so long to see.
