At the age of 9, my mother and I moved to the US. Since my mother was a single parent, she had to work a lot to support the family. She signed me up to do sports like swimming and wrestling but the influence of my friends and the freedom that I had led me down the wrong path. All of this began at the age of 12. First, I started smoking weed and drinking and by the age of 14, I was popping pills and doing heroin.
At the age of 17, I got arrested, went through a rehab program, and got kicked out of the house. Everything was going downhill. I had no goals for my life, and I just lived to get by.
Then one day my mother found out about Exodus Recovery, and I decided to give it a try. At first, I wanted to stay for a month and leave, then go back to the life I used to live, but going through the program, God touched my heart, showing me that drugs were the last problem I had. He showed me the deep-rooted areas of my addiction and where they came from. If it wasn’t for Exodus Recovery and the staff members in this program, who were so supportive at all times, I don’t know where I would be right now!
Exodus recovery program helped me get freedom from my addiction. Today I have plans for the future, a beautiful fiancee, a community of friends, and a stable job.
