Lawmakers fight for recovery high schools
from U.S. News & World Report
When Kristen was 14, she started drinking alcohol alone at night in her room. She suffered from anxiety and depression after her mother, a longtime alcoholic and anorexic, committed suicide when Kristen was 11. Over the next few years, Kristen also smoked marijuana, took pills, used LSD and experimented with crystal meth. At her public high school outside of Philadelphia, she was a partier, one of the "cool kids" and "a badass who used [drugs] all the time," she recalls.
