HOC – Nguyễn Thị Vĩnh 7

My mother said, “Methadone is like a second mother who gives you life.” Without heroine clinging onto me, I return to my everyday life with my mother. I help my mother make “bánh trôi bánh chay” (a type of dessert made from glutinous rice) so she can sell them at the market. At the moment, I am the co-leader of the recovery support group. Each month, I organize two gatherings for the group and during each meeting, I will talk with the members, checking if they are still using heroin or meth. If the topics are within my knowledge, I will deliver the session without having to invite experts.
