Earl S.

I grew up in a home with no father and an alcoholic, drug addicted mother and was sexually assaulted starting at the age of 4. At the age of 13, I started smoking cigarettes, pot and drinking alcohol which progressed to other drugs by age 15. I believe it was to medicate my hostile childhood trauma. I had a mental breakdown and lost my job and home which brought me to Teen Challenge. I am here to be restored in my mind and family relationships. I hope to find my purpose and develop lifelong accountable relationships.
