Emily H.

I had a good childhood with loving parents and my little sister. As I got older, I strayed from God and was chasing chaos. When I was 17, I was introduced to heroin after finding out that my mom was diagnosed with cancer. That’s when I became a full-blown I.V. user. I was chasing a life of destruction and I became distracted. I was using drugs to mask my hurt and shame. I went through Teen Challenge in 2014 so when I was ready to change, I knew I wanted to come back. I hope to grow closer to God and strengthen my faith. I also want to forgive myself and others and to learn discipline.
