Whitney Houston’s Fight against Substance Abuse Inspiring

Today, Whitney Houston will sit down with talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Many will tune in because they love Whitney as a musical artist.  But many others will watch because they are seeking inspiration for their own substance addictions.

Whitney Houston, a Grammy-winning international songbird, is in the fight of her life.  Like others, she is battling a substance addiction that can consume a person’s entire being and change the world for all around them.   If viewers can take something away from watching Whitney on Oprah today, perhaps they will understand that substance abuse is real and that status and class protects no one from addictive substances.

If Whitney’s story inspires one more person to fight their addiction, her story will not be in vain.
