My name is Adrian and I am 21 years old. When I was growing up, I was very fortunate to have been raised in a Christian home with two Christian parents who instilled Biblical principles in my life. At a young age I started rebelling and doing things my way. I began trying different drugs at a young age trying to fill that God-shaped hole in my heart. I began to fill it with things of the world like relationships and rebelling against the people who loved me the most. After several years of addiction, I was tired of the misery and depression. I wanted help because I tried everything else; rehabs, relationships, drugs and nothing made me happy. Since I have been at Teen Challenge, God has changed my life and given me a new start. I thought I would never be normal or be able to live a life without drugs. I have a personal relationship with Him that I’ve never had before. I know who I am now and do not have to fill myself with worldly things, God now fills the desires of my heart.
