"Hope after Heroin” with Tracey Helton Mitchell, Author, “The Big Fix”

Tracey Helton Mitchell is a recovering heroin addict. With raw honesty and a poignant perspective on life that only comes from starting at rock bottom, “The Big Fix” tells her story of transformation from homeless heroin addict to stable mother of three—and the hard work and hard lessons that got her there.

After completing rehab in 1998, she dedicated her life to the care and treatment of heroin users. She entered school through an ex-offender’s program where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and a Masters of Public Administration. In addition, she is a certified addiction specialist and supervisor. She was featured in the movie “Black Tar Heroin: The Dark End of the Street.”
