Growing up for me was great as a child, but as I got older it was difficult to process. My parents divorced and addiction began at the age of 13. I believe I began using to escape reality and to feel a sense of excitement and being alive. Before coming to Teen Challenge, I was physically dependent upon alcohol and suicidal.  My hope now is to learn about Christianity and to be a good Christian and to use the values learned here to heal past hurts.
