I am 38 years old and I am from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. I had a really good upbringing with a family that truly loved me. I had a daughter at young age, but went on and graduated from a vocational high school and became a licensed Journeyman Electrician by the age of 22. I met my wife and we bought our first home when I was 25. Shortly after that my brother came to my house with some pills and I tried painkillers for the first time, my self-destruction began. Over the next ten years I went to 8 different treatment centers but it didn’t help. I lost visitation rights to see my daughter, I lost my electrical license, I lost our home, my wife left me and filed for divorce, I had overdosed and been revived, I lost my purpose and I lost the will to live. On February 24, 2011 the phone call came. My older brother called me and said “Our brother is dead”. He had died from an overdose. I remember going through these feelings that I could never begin to explain, feelings of grief, guilt, shame, sadness, etc. all at the same time. I remember wishing that my wife or daughter were there with me to hug. I realized I was all alone and that it was my fault. That is when I cried out and begged God to help me. I told him that I couldn’t do this alone, and asked him to please help me. I asked him to forgive me for being so selfish. Within a few months, God put Pastor in my path. He explained Jesus Christ and the cross to me. He told me that if I would accept this free gift that Jesus had already died for, that I could leave my old life and all of those bad things that I had done at the foot of the cross and I would be forgiven. He also told me something else that day; he told me that he believed in me. I hadn’t heard somebody say that to me in a long time. That was the day that things started turning around for me. That was the day that I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Well, I fell again. I reached out to Pastor and he told me about Teen Challenge, I thought that he was joking, I was 35 years old and assumed Teen Challenge was for Teens. Little did I know that I was committing myself to the hardest recovery program in the world. God helped me endure. In May of 2014, I had been in the program for about three months and I went to the Brockton Family and Probate court for my divorce hearing. My wife told the judge “I am seeing something different in my husband since he has been in Teen Challenge, I would like to postpone the divorce.” Today, the divorce has been dropped and our family is being restored! I graduated in May of 2015! Today my family is proud of me. My mother, has made it her mission to be a voice in the addiction community and tell as many people about was God is doing through Teen Challenge and bring hope to as many as she can. She has joined and started several groups and is working diligently to make sure that families don’t have to go through what we did. My beautiful wife and I are working through the mistakes that I had made, she has been through so much and I am so blessed to have her by my side. God has blessed us with our precious little boy Jonathon. My daughter has turned into a beautiful young woman! She has graduated high school and went on to college where she is studying corporate accounting. She has accepted Christ in her life and God has begun restoring our relationship. I am so grateful for what God is doing in my life through Teen Challenge. I have been gratefully serving at Teen Challenge and keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. God is restoring my family and all of those other things that I had lost and I have a hope and a future! The scripture that I stand on is- 2 Corinthians 5:17- "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"
Locked facility where minors have to earn privileges. Staff tries to engage the kids in conversation and genuinely seem to care. Facility seems kind of old and is lacking in recreational items to keep the kids occupied in their downtime. I would recommend this facility to anyone with minors who have a substance abuse issue.

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program has identified Massachusetts as a high-risk area when it comes to driving under the influence, according to the White House Massachusetts Drug Control Update. Drinking and driving has long been targeted by public service announcements as a bad choice in behavior, but little has been said about the effects of "drugged driving" or driving while under the influence of prescription medications and other drugs. The fact is that even over-the-counter medication can be too overwhelming to allow you to drive safely. When you use other substances, you significantly increase your chances of having a car accident - that could be deadly.Exploring Treatment Clinics in Brockton
