This was January 20, 2015. Also the day that my life changed for the better. This picture was taken about an hour after I had said goodbye to my parents. I wouldn’t see them for another 3 months. As you all know, I was a complete wreck. I was making terrible choices and damaging my mental and physical health. Thanks to the staff at IDYCA, and the love and support from my family, an true friends, I got out of the rut I was in. It was a long 5-1/2 months but I can say I did it. I graduated from the Idaho Youth Challenge Academy on June 20th and cannot be more proud of myself. I’m clean, I’m healthy, an I’m happy. Thank you to those of you who have followed me in my journey towards recovery.
