Growing up for me was kind of a struggle. My mother was a single mom raising four children so we didn’t get all the things we wished we had. For me, addiction began roughly when I was 25 years old. I believe the reason that I used drugs was to numb the pain, depression, and anxiety that I thought I had. Recently life became too much and I came to Teen Challenge to find Christ as well as myself. I hope to learn to stop running and embrace what God has for me.
