It was horrible. I was always looking for drugs and always doing what I could to get it.

Meth has taken my son away, my kid’s mother, my parents, my family, my freedom and everything I love.

My hope moment was the night I got arrested and went to jail. I was thankful that this was ending and I’d be sober for a while while I was incarcerated. While I was in there, thankfully, it was a good jail where they were in touch with Mn Adult & Teen Challenge. I started talking to my family again, and they were glad to see where I was at. I know it’s sad to say that they’re happy to see you in jail, but that’s what it came to.

It was refreshing coming to Mn Adult & Teen Challenge because I knew it was going to change my life. Coming in I was 110 days sober, I was pretty clear headed and I didn’t know what to expect, but I was ready for it.

Hope shows me that anything is possible with restoring my family. We were at a point where they wanted to disown me, and now they’re coming to visit me on the weekends. I get to see my son every other weekend, and everything is starting to look up finally.

This program has impacted me greatly. It’s turned my whole attitude around and changed my way of thinking, and it’s given me a lot of hope for the future. I know I’m 43 years old, but I can still serve a purpose and I have something to look forward to.
