After using drugs I started to get into trouble. I wasn’t doing my homework, misbehaving at school and home and didn’t care about anything or anyone. All I thought about was how I could get money for drugs or alcohol.
Finally between my mom and my school I ended up at F.A.S.T. Since coming in, I now have a real education about drugs and alcohol. Though I still have some issues, I encourage anyone who has any such problems to just call F.A.S.T. and talk about it.
At eleven I started using drugs. Mostly I abused alcohol, marijuana and cocaine, and if nothing else was available, prescription pills. My drug use got me into a lot of trouble over the years. Then I was sent to jail.
Although I had been previously involved with FAST, I had never actually admitted that I had a problem. After I was released, Jim helped me to build my life again. If I hadn’t have ended up in Family Adolescent Straight Talk, I would have ended up either dead or in jail again. Thank you Jim!
I don’t think the amazing people at FAST can ever truly understand how much I appreciate all the wonderful things they’ve done for me. FAST showed me how to get my life back, how to love myself, and that the hard times don’t last forever. Thank you Jim and Susan for everything. From myself and my family.
