Frankie M.

Growing up was mostly hanging out in the hood with the homies, getting high, drinking, stealing cars, and selling drugs. My addiction began at 13 years old. I used drugs and alcohol because that’s all my friends and I really knew. The purpose of my addiction was to join my gang and not fear the things I was doing out there. I lost my family, wife, kids, all my loved ones before I came here to Teen Challenge. I am here to change my life and to serve my Father God. I want to be able to walk in forgiveness to myself and those around me.
