I am 17 years old. I first stepped foot in PDAP 4 years ago. At that time I was cold-hearted; I felt emotions were for weak-minded people. At first, I was hesitant about coming, but I did it to get my parents off of my back. A few weeks passed and I came to believe I really was and am an addict. After a while in PDAP, I made true friends/family, I came to believe in my higher power, basically, I felt like a new person…I truly believe that PDAP saved my life because without PDAP, I know I would be either in a cemetery or in a lockdown facility.
