Life growing up was pretty hectic, I grew up with an abusive stepfather. My addiction began when my mother got remarried after the death of my father, that was when I was 12 years old. When my addiction began, originally it was not of my own volition, the drugs were prescribed to me, but other than that I used drugs and alcohol to cover up past trauma. I was on the verge of bankruptcy and homelessness before I came to Teen Challenge. I am here to find healthy living habits. I hope to restore my relationship with my family while I complete this program.
