Pamela Knight is a certified Drug Interventionist, raising awareness for drug addiction. Pamela’s story is extremely powerful and led her to her career today. Pam’s story began when she was working for Liganore High School, and given pain pills to subdue a back injury. From taking those pills, Pam soon became addicted, not realizing how severe it would soon become. From going to various doctors to finding pills on the streets, Pamela’s addiction spiraled. During the Winter, Pamela wasn’t able to obtain pills and began having extreme withdrawals. Finally admitting to her family of her addiction, she was sent to rehab and began her brave journey to sobriety. After her discharge date, Pamela joined a sober home and quickly became a mother figure for the younger generation, opening her eyes to every side of addiction. Coming back to Maryland, and finding her place back into her career with Liganore, she decided she would take her pain and turn it into purpose. Pam found herself giving hope and education to those also finding their struggles with addiction.
Addiction doesn’t discriminate, it’s a mental illness that affects all walks of life. Taking a leave of absence and becoming a Drug Interventionist, Pamela found her clarity. Pamela travels to homes and schools to educate others about addiction and to help families cope with addiction. In Maryland, we are in a State of Emergency for drug addiction. Pamela works hard to help those struggling with addiction find their peace, and educates the public on just how serious addiction is.
