Houston Prostitutes Have New Rehabilitation Option

Experience is often the best teacher. Kathryn Griffin’s experiences recovering from drug addiction and prostitution have qualified her to help other prostitutes recover from the destructive lifestyle, which often includes drugs, sex, and booze.

Griffin got a full taste of the lifestyle. She fell into prostitution after dropping out of college and becoming a groupie for a band on tour. She first developed an addiction to cocaine that racked up some serious debts – then turned to prostitution to support her addiction. When the tour ended, things only went from bad to worse. It wasn’t until she landed in Houston’s drug court that her life turned around. From there, she was able to recover from her addictions and come to an understanding of what was needed to help other ladies break free from a life on the streets.

Griffin knows that prostitutes originate from every walk of life. They are often introduced to the lifestyle as a result of drug addiction or childhood abuse. Some are even sold for a pack of cigarettes, according to the News-Sentinel. Whatever the reason, they need help to break free from the destructive lifestyle – and that’s exactly what Griffin hopes to help them do.

Griffin’s non-profit organization, We’ve Been There And Done That, is a testimony of her struggle with and victory over this difficult lifestyle. She hopes her story will now help other ladies to break free from the destructive cycle. And Governor Rick Perry only needs to sign a bill that will enable other big cities to allow similar reform programs in their jails.

The program is unique in that it offers support long after the completion of rehabilitation. “They are the victims and they’ve been treated like criminals,” Griffin states. She makes every effort to help the girls adjust back into society following their rehabilitation. She teaches job skills, good conduct, and forbids cussing. She even offers to take the girls shopping for clothes, since many of them only have street clothes.

Judges began earlier this year to sentence repeat convicts to Griffin’s program. While it’s too soon to tell the impact Ginan has had on the thirty ladies that have already passed through the program, her hopes are high.
