Darnell Accepting Change

Darnell Smith - Newark, New Jersey

Darnell shares about his addiction habit and how when his insurance ended he was still struggling with addiction. He went through drug court in 2008 and did nothing in the program- cutting corners. The last time he was sentences he decided to actually do the program to change his life. He was tired of living that life and had to literally get on his knees and surrender himself. He had never been to a Therapeutic community and this is his second program, which is credits with helping him a lot.
