Jonah G.

I was raised wealthy, home-schooled, and healthy. I loved life and my family. I was raised Christian, and I really enjoyed being a part of the church. I started heavily drinking when I started college and I quickly dropped out because of it. I drank to “level myself out.” If I was too bored, I drank and if I was too stressed, I drank. My father died in October of 23’ and I was the one that found him. I proceeded to drink even heavier than I already had been, and I tried to kill myself via overdose twice. I came to Teen Challenge because my drinking led to me losing everything I owned and almost my whole life. I hope that this program will lead me to live an overall healthy life, that would be spiritually, physically and mentally healthy.
