Anthony B.

I had a really good childhood. My twin brother and I were very active, involved in sports such as baseball, basketball, and soccer. Camping and fishing have always been our favorites. My addiction began in high school with drinking alcohol, but I began to experiment with marijuana and my grades began to drop so I decided to drop out of school but it didn’t stop there. I ended up using Heroin and Meth. I used drugs at first to fit in with the crowd, but eventually I used to just feel happy. I came to Teen Challenge because I had just got released from jail and didn’t want to go back to my old stomping ground in fear I might relapse. I also am getting to know my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want to develop a relationship with Him and leave the old me behind. I hope while at Teen Challenge I am able to find myself, learn about myself, and learn about Christ.
