I'm addicted to coke and alcohol with a history of major depression. How do I get clean without getting depressed?
William Anderson Says...
Go to a treatment facility that treats both addiction and mental illnesses. Talk with a counselor there about your problem. You can decide to get into an inpatient program or an outpatient program. They have psychiatric care as well as addiction treatment, and they will help with your addictions as well as your depression and treat you medically as you detox.
Don't be afraid of the coke withdrawal. You know things have been getting worse the way you are, and they will continue to get worse unless you get clean and sober. Be afraid of getting worse if you don't get clean and sober.
Get going on this now. The sooner you sit down with a counselor at one of these places, the sooner your life will get better.
