I had a great childhood growing up with loving parents in a Christian home. I grew up in church but grew further away from God as I got older. My addiction began a couple of years ago around the age of 24. At that age, I seemed to be going through a lot, so I used drugs to numb the pain. I came to Teen Challenge because I noticed that I was slowly losing everything I had and needed to turn it around quickly. I’m here now to obtain sobriety so I can become a better man, father and son. I hope to renew my relationship with God and use the opportunity to live in His will this time and not mine.
