From addiction to reading, writing, and working

After many run-ins with the law, I started taking drugs as well as drinking. Then I found myself in rehab for the second time. It took me six months for me to realize I was an addict while I was in Morgan County. I realized much later, I had an opportunity to change my life. After 13 months of hard, hard work, I joined the Williamson County Drug Court (21st District Recovery Court) and my life got better and better. I got a good job, new family, started a program to learn how to read and write. I finally got my driver's license back and I am paying off my fines.

I would not be where I am today if I didn't become an addict. This program saved my life. It gave me the tools for a better life.
