Like most guys here in our 12-month residential Spiritual Recovery Program, Les started using drugs as a teenager and chemicals eventually took over his life. But, at 32, he’s on the younger side of our average age of 39 and one of only 10% here who served in the US military.
Also, like so many who come here, Les was ready for a change and settled in quickly. And the good news for him was that his loved ones stuck with him through it all – as the families of most guys here do, as well.
Not much different than others, Les also arrived here with some serious legal issues. I watched him prepare himself for each court hearing – trusting God to do what was best – and then heard his sincere gratitude each time God brought him back to Helping Up Mission.
Like most of the guys here, Les is also a bright and capable guy who makes good decisions when he’s clean and focused. He now has a pretty bright future, too! And, as a HUM grad, Les is ready to step out and get started!
It will work for him…
…One Day at a Time,
