No Longer Looking Over My Shoulder
“From alcohol to heroin, from the crack pipe to the syringe and from petty theft to aggravated robbery. I was focused solely on myself and what I wanted. That was a battle fought with many failures. I was broke, busted, and disgusted of who I was and what I had become.”
Relational Way of Life
“When I was nineteen, I was in a car wreck that led to a surgery on my right femur. Two months later, I was fully addicted to pain pills. The prescription stopped but the addiction did not.”
“Life before Teen Challenge was almost not worth living. I welcomed death, I even hoped for it. In my eyes I was not worth saving. I thought I was on my own and had to do it on my own. I used whatever I could and whomever I could. I was always masking the problems and never facing them.”
Becoming Habitually Selfless
I came to Teen Challenge Cincinnati Men’s Ranch because of my drug addiction. I was full of hate, unforgiveness, self-hatred and had a victim mentality. My relationships were broken. I isolated myself. I was at a place where I couldn’t help myself and least of all my family. I couldn’t go on any longer with my addiction as I was losing my will to live.
Freedom For My Life
“My world that I built based on lies and deception was falling apart, due to poor life-style choices I had made and due to living a life apart from God. I was severely addicted to gambling and drank heavily to numb the pain of it. I had lost a relationship with my 7 month pregnant fiancé just two days before our wedding.”
