Chloƫ's struggle probably began in the 8th grade and continued until her passing her senior year of high school. In the beginning she was just smoking marijuana, and when they say that it is a gateway drug...it most certainly was in her case. Chloƫ was in and out of various rehabs, hospitals and wilderness programs. Her family did everything to help her fight her overwhelming personal struggle against drugs. There was part of her that really wanted sobriety. But at the same time, she believed she could handle the drugs. Yet she was no match for the horrendous power of heroin. From the time she started smoking heroin (she didn't inject) until her death, was a mere 15 months.
