Substance abuse and depression, this is the story of Kristine. She describes how she changed from being a good student and athlete to a drug addict. Addicted to drugs or alcohol and need help now, go to

My name is Kristine. I’m from Massachusetts. I’m 18 years old. I came to Palm Partners.

I’m from a small town in Massachusetts. I had a lot of friends, I was a good student, I was a great athlete. But I just felt depressed. I needed to fill that void. I found that with drugs and alcohol. And it worked for a little while, but after it got to be too much, I lost everything. My family didn’t want to talk to me anymore. I lost all my friends and I lost my good grades. I wasn’t a good athlete anymore. I needed help, and I finally surrendered. I came to Palm Partners and it actually changed my life.

I wouldn’t have been able to do it if I didn’t come here. If you need help, please reach out and get it, because if I didn’t reach out, I don’t know where I’d be. I could be dead. I could out on the streets. I could be homeless. It’s helped me so much. I saw Dr. Connelly here and he changed my life. I feel so much better and the staff here is great. I just got so much out of this.

So if you need help, don’t hesitate. Just ask for it.
