"I tried to graduate from Helping Up Mission before but failed," he said. "This time, I took a hard look at the reasons why I was involved in actions and behaviors that were tearing me down. It was not all about drugs and alcohol. It was little things. But, my life is now turned around. I cannot let myself or the people around me down, like Dr. Kameen, that worked so hard to help me accomplish my first set of goals."
