Being around drugs and money all the time led Matt to substance abuse. Before he knew it he was hooked on what he was selling. He was selling to get high and using to maintain survival. Everything in his life had fallen apart but his family never gave up on him. They were the ones who reached out to him to get him the help he needed.
Matt was afraid to detox. If he knew the things he learned later in treatment then he would’ve gone much earlier. It was a real easy transition that he took to. It was an experience that he ever knew was possible. It saved his life.
Today Matt loves the life that he has. He wouldn’t be happy if he was dealt any other hand. He’s content with standing on his own choices and decisions. It’s truly been a complete 360 over the last 5-10 years for him. He is grateful for everything he has.
