Our Open Letter to Pittsburgh About Addiction

Recovery is not easy. It is something that requires effort and energy every day. Recovery is a journey, and the trajectory of that journey depends entirely upon the individual’s level of belief within themselves combined with the efficacy of the treatment they are participating in.pittsburgh addiction

Against popular belief, money, success, fans and living your dream do NOT increase your likelihood of abstaining from harsh drugs or your demons.

The passing of Pittsburgh’s very own Mac Miller illustrates this point. Malcom has been struggling with substance abuse and he just passed away today, September 7th, 2018, as a result of an overdose.pittsburgh addiction

He was only 26 years old.

This touches all of us at Makin Wellness so deeply. I myself have a hard time accepting Mac Miller’s death . In 2012, he mentioned in an interview :

“I’d rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess who can’t even get out of his house. Overdosing is just not cool. You don’t go down history because you overdose. You just die”

If you are struggling with addiction, PLEASE get help. We can help you get the help you or your loved one is looking for.pittsburgh addiction

We offer medical marijuana assisted opioid outpatient treatment that is backed by research to be effective. Our addiction treatment programs are also holistic , come with secure texting to your therapist and have the option of meeting virtually.

If you need help, we can provide it at Makin Wellness or provide you with a referral to another treatment program that is in network with your insurance (if money or location is an issue). If you need a high or higher level of care than what we can provide, we have powerful connections with the best holistic rehabs , such as White Deer Run  , and can help you get treatment FAST… same day if need be.

If you have any questions or need to talk please call us at (412)-532-1249 or send us an email at info@makinwellness.com . You can book a session here or call this substance abuse hotline 24/7 here : (724) 602-2755 pittsburgh addiction
