National Safety Council Shares Nadine Machkovech’s Story of Recovery to Bring Hope Across the U.S.
Nadine Machkovech started using drugs as a young teen. Her addiction led to a dark path faster than she ever could imagine, eventually turning to pills, then heroin. Nadine, who is celebrating four years of recovery, shares her story with thousands of people to let them know they can and do #recover.
“I couldn't face myself in the mirror because of the choices that I was making. I started digging myself so deep into a hole that I never thought I would make it out... but I made it out.”
I am so grateful for this opportunity that was given to me. To be able to share my story in an honor and I hope that others can find courage and inspiration by it.
