“I am an outgoing person naturally, but I had taken my life to dangerous extreme. I was bad choices, experimenting with drugs, and getting into trouble. As far as I could tell I didn’t have anything positive going on for me.”
Decided. Determined. Different.
“My life before Teen challenge was miserable. I struggled with severe depression. I went to six different, inpatient rehabs where they told me; “I was an addict and I would always be one.” I overdosed many times. As a result of my last overdose, I lost custody of my oldest son. My drug use got even worse. Seeking help, I went into a treatment program for medical detox and I found out that I was pregnant again.”
“I thought I was managing my addiction and keeping it a secret from my friends and family. It wasn’t until I got pregnant with my son that I realized that my life had spiraled out of control. I was a full-blown heroin addict at that point. I was abusing drugs on a daily basis and without my notice, 6 years had escaped by. I spent much of that time in and out of jail, rehab, and sober living homes, often being kicked out for breaking one rule or another. I had an authority problem.”
Purpose. Discipline. Direction
“But soon, lies, anger, and sneaking around had taken over my life. I was defensive and angry about everything. My drug and alcohol use continued and escalated.”
“I had never taken a faith-based approach towards my struggles with addiction. I decided to enter Teen Challenge Cincinnati.”
