I am a 40 yr old Native man who has lived his life on the streets battling alcoholisim and drug addiction. I have cleaned up many times but just can't make it last. Now the wait for detox is so long it is almost impossible to get in so I am stuck. I had a girlfriend for many years but thankfully she finally got it right and moved back to Manitoba so she could have a fresh start. I am very lonely now and miss her so much. I want to get clean and stay clean so I can go be with her but am having a hard time getting intyo detox. I love her too much to go there without serious clean time so I am praying for a miracle. Thanks to you all for all your generosity and kindness
