In Dallas, Roadside Warriors Help Struggling Addicts
Micah Petty does not look like your typical super-hero, but out on the streets of suburban Dallas, she is bringing hope and saving lives.
When approaching addicts, at first they are not sure whether or not to trust the friendly woman in her white Ford Escape. “They kind of look at me like oh gosh she’s going to talk me into doing something that I am not ready to do,” said Petty.
In many cases, Petty needs to be incredibly persistent in order to convince addicts that they need to commit to entering recovery. She recalls one such challenging case –
“I lost touch with him I kept following back up with him, following back up with him and I was scared like maybe he wasn’t answering because he got a bad batch or maybe he took too much,” Petty said.
Fortunately, her persistence paid off – it was her concern that ultimately got the young man into treatment. Today he’s sober, and looking forward to reclaiming his future.
