Woman Breaks 30-Year Crack & Heroin Addiction

Loss of a job, a break in income, even becoming sick, these are just a few reasons why someone can become homeless. But drug abuse is what landed Golden Anderson in the Greenville Community Shelter. Thirty years of using crack cocaine and heroin finally took a toll on Golden, and she decided she needed a new lease on life. Golden checked into the shelter seven months ago, where she's been clean and sober ever since. This week Golden signed a lease on a new apartment, has a part time job and is also enrolling in Pitt Community College. It's a lifestyle she as well as the team at the shelter is excited about. Golden says after she finishes her classes at Pitt Community College, she plans to pursue a career in counseling or social work.
