My name is Lina, I was using drugs for 7 years. During this time my son Nikita was born. At first, when I just started to use drugs, it gave me pleasure, but the time came when everything around me began to crumble and fall to pieces. I lost my job, and for the next dose I was able to sell even my mother. And once for that kind of behaviour, my mom just drove me from home, and my life had come to a situation where I had to decide - if I'm fighting this problem or living on the street. In Lithuania, for a single mother with a small child on hands to fight such a situation was difficult. And one day I remembered of a man who once told about social adaptation centre in Latvia, where they can help me to deal with my problem and that there would accept me with a child. I did not think for a long and decided to come. I do not regret that decision for a moment. My and baby son life changed drastically. Now we have a future, and all the necessary conditions to develop. We are very grateful for this place, here we are at home.
