Success Stories

At South Carolina Primary Care Specialists, we’re committed to leading our clients to recovery from opioid addiction. And with help from our counseling partners, we’re privileged to see that happening every day.

We don’t measure success with statistics. We measure success in terms of the dramatic, positive changes we are helping our clients make in their lives – and the lives of their families. Each of those clients has a unique story to tell of overcoming addiction to find hope for healing. And we’re proud to help some of them share their stories in this section.

Brad’s Story

Brad Barnett is a healthy, happy and successful substance abuse therapist – with a beautiful family and a doctoral degree on the horizon. But about eight years ago, he was at “rock bottom” and sitting in a jail cell, after battling for more than a decade with opioid addiction.

See how he eventually won the battle and is now helping others conquer addiction.

Breezy’s Story

At just 32 years of age, eastern Kentucky native Breezy Jude already has five children – and has been battling addiction for nearly 20 years. Today, though, Breezy is in recovery – thanks to medication assisted treatment and counseling at Eastern Kentucky Primary Care Specialists, in Inez, Kentucky.

Watch her inspiring story of conquering addiction to become the person and mother she’s always wanted to be.

Chelsea’s Story

Chelsea Carter began her journey to addiction at the age of 12. Then, she says, it was just alcohol and pot. But her abuse of substances shot to a whole new level a few years later when, she says, she met the next love of her life – Oxycontin. Her addiction eventually led to a life of crime and a prison sentence of two to 20 years. But today, she’s not only free from incarceration, but free from addiction. And she now helps others overcome addiction as a substance abuse counselor.

Watch her inspiring story.

Vanessa’s Story

Vanessa is a 37-year-old single mother of two children – and a recovering heroin addict. Her addiction began shortly after the premature birth of our first child when she was prescribed with Percocet to help her with normal post-delivery pain. But that addiction expanded to cocaine. And then heroin. And it ultimately consumed her life. But Vanessa found the help she needed at Ohio Valley Physicians (formerly Appalachian Health Services) in Huntington.

And she’s now proud to tell her story of recovery.
