Dunham writes she didn’t know she had an issue with drugs for a long time because they were prescribed by a doctor, she was outwardly successful and she was not a wild partier.
She says the community of other people in recovery has brought her “peace, joy and lasting connections.”
She encouraged others struggling with addiction to persevere and ask for help, reminding them “you are never too far gone.”
