Dejah Hall decided to share this shocking photo collage of her 4-year journey from full-blown addiction to sobriety. Her story spread quickly, and the incredible journey touched hundreds of thousands of hearts around the world.
Today marks 4 years clean from heroin and meth. The top left is me in full blown addiction. I was a terrible iv user and like most, progressively got worse. The bottom left is me the day I was arrested 12-6-12 and coincidentally the day I finally surrendered to God! With the help of God I am completing my BA and hope to one day be a prison minister. I have a beautiful 18 month old and everyday I thank God that I am not where I once was! Sobriety is Possible.”
Her story was so moving because so many people could relate to it. They had either battled addiction themselves, were currently fighting it, knew someone who was, or had a family member that was struggling as well. The story hit home for so many people, and seeing her success was inspiring. When her story began to circulate, she was invited to local news stations for interviews, and knew it was a chance to help others during their own battles.
I have received an overwhelming response to this post. I never imagined I would receive this kind of response from the community and country! I never thought this post would even be shared and I am grateful it has been. God is driving this car and I know in my heart this is all God! These pictures are humiliating and show the real effects of drugs, but that doesn’t have to be your reality! God bless!”
She hopes that her “humiliating” pictures will help others take addiction seriously and inspire even more people to overcome their own addictions in the process.
