Adam Reaching Out for Help

Adam Pfeifer - Newark, New Jersey

Adam shares his story with addiction. He shares how difficult it was to find help when very few programs accepted Medicaid. He had to let his Medicaid expire and apply for a federal grant. He notes that when dealing with addiction, even waiting a few weeks for Medicaid for expire could have cost him his life.

He shares his frustration with the difficulty of finding treatment. However, he shares his pride in his progress: he is going back to school and credits the programs he's attended for turning his life around.
