God used Adult & Teen Challenge to save and change my life! I grew up in a loving, Christian, big, Italian family. At the age of sixteen my parents divorced. I stopped caring and turned to alcohol and drugs. It was the only thing that made me feel better. High school drinking parties turned into sinking into alleys and smoking crack and jamming a needle full of heroin in any vein that still worked. I tried on my own to stop using by working hard and being positive, but instead I found myself committing crimes to support my addiction. In 2011, I came to Adult & Teen Challenge. Since then I learned so much about God and so much about myself. I have truly been transformed by the power of Christ and His love. Upon completion of the program, I returned to work at Adult & Teen Challenge, helping other young men find the same freedom and life transformation that I have found.
