My life was pretty normal, growing up in California. There were some struggles of course, but mostly good times and fun memories! I began to fall into addiction in my mid 20’s. When I was around 27 years old, I believed that I was strong enough to help a good friend out of his addiction and ended up getting stuck in it. I believe my reason for trying drugs was mostly my effort to help someone I cared about to freedom. The reason I became an addict myself was because of God’s plan for my life. Relapse caused a series of incidents which lead to my being here at Teen Challenge. I am here to answer the call of Jesus Christ on my life. I hope to receive a closer relationship with Christ and learn to trust Him completely.
