22-year-old Morgan was a couple of years younger than Emily, but went to the same high school and was part of the gymnastics team. She says Emily was always encouraging her. Morgan began drinking and smoking college and then moved on to harder drugs. Morgan says, ” I would use a lot. It wasn’t just a small amount, it was a large amount and I could never have enough. I always needed more. Where my friends would be stopping, I would keep going.”
Morgan says a miracle led her to treatment and when she received an Emily’s Hope Treatment Scholarship, she knew that Emily was looking out for her. She calls Emily her guardian angel.
Morgan shares how drinking and drugging took over her life and how she is returning to herself through sobriety.
