“It is heartbreaking to me that so many in our country struggle with addiction.  I was one of them.  I volunteer at Gateway because I want to be an example that through help, hard work, faith and commitment anyone can free themselves from this horrible disease.  I would love to see everyone feel how I feel.  The life I created in recovery is so much better than the life I left behind.”
