Life for me growing up was good. I had a fun loving family and wouldn’t trade it. My addiction began in Detroit with Xanax and Codeine. When I moved to Arizona I began to use meth. It was a time in my life where I thought nothing bad of people using it because that was what I expected and thought that was the norm, especially in Detroit. I came to Teen Challenge because I really wanted to absorb the experience here and what it offers. I now have hope in my future and in my present.
