NYC Mayor Speaks Up About Drug Abuse

Until now, the daughter of NYC Mayor has stayed out of the public eye. In her Youtube video, Chiara spoke about her clinical depression that seemed to last for her entire adolescence. She learned to deal with it by not knowing how else to deal with it: drinking and abusing drugs. To protect their daughter, NYC Mayor to-be Bill, and his wife Chirlane, have been privately helping her through this deep and personal struggle. Chiara is not only committed to her own well being and health, but is also committed to helping other young people who are struggling with similar challenges. According to reports and the video itself, the daughter of NYC Mayor has completed outpatient treatment and is now doing her best to reach out and help others.

In her video, Chiara stated that “Getting sober is always a positive thing.” She states that her parents are both very emotionally committed to bettering her life and support her. Gil Kerlikowske, the White House Drug Policy Director praised Chiara for speaking up and celebrating her recovery out loud. He made the very powerful statement regarding Chiara helping to correct the misinformation and stigma of addiction that many Americans often mistake as a moral issue. The daughter of NYC Mayor to-be decided to speak up about her struggles because she knows that this disease is killing people every day. She stated the truth about society not being able to help those struggling with addiction unless people start talking about it.

Addiction Treatment

Chiara got the help she needed through a substance abuse treatment facility that provided her with outpatient care. The de Blasio family sounds like they are a very loving family, and extremely supportive of their daughter. Battling depression and addiction is never easy, but finding a solution to all your problems is the greatest thing you can do for yourself; sobriety is the greatest gift for not just yourself, but for your loved ones as well.

If you or someone you know is struggling with the disease of addiction, speak up and save a life.
