Homeless as a young adult in Long Beach, California, Danielle Christensen knew the deep descent of addiction. She was using drugs “every moment of every day, and always looking for ways and means to get more.” In and out of jails, Christensen was severely depressed and malnourished. What gave her a radical new life was intensive, court-ordered treatment. “I was given the opportunity to change my life, and with lots of help, I became somebody I could finally love for the first time in my life,” Christensen says. Today, she celebrates nearly four years of recovery and helps others rebuild their lives after addiction. Christensen is a case manager and peer specialist for the nonprofit Curran Seeley Foundation in Jackson, Wyoming.
