    Getting clean means I’ll be looking for a job soon (great timing, right?). The first job I’ve had in literally, years. What I’m wondering is, does anyone have any experience in just telling the truth during interviews, ie- “I haven’t worked in five years because I was a drug addict, but now I’m clean?” I mean, I don’t know how else I’m going to explain to potential employers why I’ve been out of it for so long. But at the same time, who wants to hire a drug addict? Any help would be greatly appreciated here.
