Video Description

A young woman has a brush with death in a coma induced by her heroin addiction. She started in an affluent suburban high school taking pain killers, oxycontin and then graduating to heroin. Her high school peers, in one of the wealthiest suburbs in the nation, find heroin use common, widespread, and "almost normal." She desribes her coma, her struggles with recovery, her inpatient drug treatment at Brighton Center for Recovery and her aftercare planning and care at Brighton at the Corners in West Bloomfield, MI, where she participates in the Intensive Outpatient Program, IOP. Brighton at the Corners is convenient to recovering patients from Oakland County, Macomb County, Wayne County and other suburban Michigan communities.
