Growing up I had a great childhood and I always remember having everything I always wanted. Sometimes having everything is not enough though. Around the middle of my high school years I started experimenting with drugs and alcohol. Hopefully through Teen Challenge I can figure out what made me start using. Maybe it was to feel better, maybe there’s a deeper root issue I haven’t yet discovered. Earlier this year I got arrested, again, and even though it wasn’t for drugs this time I had been using again and letting everyone down around me that loved me or had anything to do with me. I was told about this program, Teen Challenge, from someone I was in jail with. I was able to get in contact with a man that was able to get me into the program. I’m hoping while I’m here to learn a new way of life centered in Christ and to be set free from addiction.
