Being an addict, I faced many of the common problems including being jobless and homeless. I ran the streets in Philadelphia and was a hopeless drug addict. I had tried to get clean and sober several times, but it wasn’t until I found a sober home managed by A Way and Means that things really started coming together for me. Now, I have a good job, I live in a positive and healthy environment, I have sober support including my family, sober friends, and a sponsor who I work the 12 steps with. I go to nearby meetings daily, and I am happy to say I have 5 months clean and sober. I have worked very hard to get to a place in my life where I am happy and healthy, and I owe a lot of my success to AWAM.
