Driver Arrested Twice in 12 Hours for Driving Impaired

Police received a call about a woman passed out behind the wheel at a mall. Callers said she had her head back on the headrest with her eyes closed and mouth open. Drivers tried to wake her by honking, but it was not until someone walked up to the car that she came to attention. She started driving again, onto a frontage road into a parking lot.

Both her an the passenger in similar condition had taken methadone. Police learned she had been arrested 12 hours earlier in another city.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
