Growing up I was fortunate to have lived in a very loving home. At the age of 19 I started with the City of Bisbee as a Police Dispatcher. I soon became a Police Officer at the age of 21.  My addiction started after several traumatic events that I had to deal with and I turned to alcohol to escape. I think the reason that I started drinking was to forget things and to numb the pain.  I came to Teen Challenge after a long time of running from God and trying to get sober my way. I have seen great growth in the short time that I have been a student at Teen Challenge. I plan to go to Bible School after completing the program.
