Before and After Drugs Photos, But Not the Kind You Think

Posted by on December 18, 2013 in Golden Tweets, Tweets of the Day

We’re used to seeing devastating photos of people’s faces and bodies horribly disfigured by drug use. You know, the before photo of the perfectly normal, attractive twenty-something who, in their “after drug use photo” looks like an eighty-five-year-old homeless person. That’s the story the media loves covering. Hey, look at these perfectly normal people! Now, look at them after a few hits of crack! They’ve turned into hideous monsters.

But what about the flip side of that? What about the people who were heavy drug addicts until they started treatment–treatment that helped them achieve full recovery. The below photos tell that tale. And what a tale it is. The ten people in the following photos were big-time drug users until they made the conscious choice to turn their lives around and seek treatment. We here at Golden Twist thought the photos were remarkable.
