Taylor E.

Life growing up for me was decent, but always trying to meet my dad’s expectations put a weight on my shoulders. My addiction began when I had suffered a torn LCL in my left ankle. I was prescribed pain medication to help ease the pain, but that soon turned into an addiction because I had no way to stop using the pain pills without getting sick. I chose to come to this Teen Challenge because of the high success rate it has but also to develop a relationship with Christ and face my addiction head on so I didn’t have to worry about it anymore. While here at Teen challenge I hope that I can learn to stay sober and talk about issues that are bothering me instead of bottling them up. Ultimately I want to have a better relationship with God.
