Elizabeth is originally from Orlando, FL. After beginning her battle both growing up in an addict home, and through her own addiction she moved to the gorgeous appalchain mountains to recover in a much slower paced setting. This blog is a place for her to share her knowledge gained through experience about addiction. The thing is you don’t KNOW addiciton unless you have experienced it either yourself or through a loved one. During recovery she began freelance writing to bring about a positive outlet. That was 9 years ago. Now her words will deliver information and ideas about recovery to you here on handmethemountains.com.
