About the Author


My name is Sigal Adini. I was born in a far away land in the 1900s. I came to America with the hopes of seeing Disneyland. It took some years to accomplish that goal and by that time it was as not the event I thought it would be. But I found Yosemite and that really made up for it.

Now I live and work in Los Angeles, California. I have the privilege of talking to thousands of people and helping them find solutions to drug addiction.

For the past ten years, I have been working in the field of drug abuse prevention and rehabilitation. Since 2004 I have been answering a drug addiction hotline. I have been asked a lot of questions, heard a million stories and have provided useful information to thousands of families.

Often people write to me to let me know how they are doing and about their successes or if they need help.

I would love to help you and I hope to hear from you either through this blog or telephone. My direct contact info is 888-800-8331. Anyone can call to ask questions about addiction, rehab and prevention. My email address is

I will do my best to give you useful information.

    My 25 year old son has relapsed and his drug addiction is worse than before. I want to get him into a detox center or program. He has no insurance and I will not pay for it, but he needs it. He is going to NA meetings, although, not regularly. Anyway, I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Are there any programs for his needs and how do I find them? Thanks for you assistance.

    Dear Sigal,
    Thank you for the great job you are doing. I spoke to you a few months ago and am still working hard to help my son get his life back.
    He is currently in a nursing home and being given Cymbalta, Depakote ,Trazadone and Zyprexa. He had been given 300mg Seroquel and I asked them to take him off of that and that I wanted to see him tapered off all medicines. Of course the Dr. doesn’t agree with me as I am not a professional.
    I want to see my son well and independant but don’t know that this is the right place to be. He is attending Gateway meetings three times a week and for that I am grateful. It looks like I must stick with this plan but would like to see him in a MISA live-in program
    program where he could do work and get off drugs completely.
    Just thought I would give you an update and Wish you a very Happy New Year.
    Thank you for the work you are doing…..Kay

    Sigal, you have been an amazing influence on my husband and me. I feel as though you have been with us every step of the way. Sending us pertinent reading material and informative videos has helped us understand how and why a person becomes addicted. My husband will always need some form of pain relief and in the beginning we never thought how much a prescribed medication could affect a person. It has been nearly three years since the accident but the effects of his injuries and the medications that doctors prescribe cannot be avoided. With the information you gave us, we both have learned ways to cope with the good days and bad days of recovery. Both from the injury as well as from the addiction to medications doctors have him on. Always hopeful….

    In December 2012, she was half way through her reconstructive procedure and has since become a symbol of hope for women suppressed
    by the Taliban, urging women to “never give up and don’t lose hope,” that “what happened, it’s part of me, part of my life and its all the time in my mind and with me.
