I was born here in Great Falls, and both of my parents have been addicts my whole life. As much as I said I would not follow in their footsteps I ended up doing just that. I became addicted to opiates at 13 years old after a back injury, and that led me to try meth for the first time at 16 years old. I stayed in addiction after that.
At 18, I received a felony due to an attempt to support my habit. I continued to get high while on probation so I was sent to NEXUS Treatment. I continued to use and get into trouble until I finally landed in treatment court. I have been clean and sober now since 03/04/22 and have been with RMTC since 11/05/22. I love my job! I have always wanted to help people so working here has been a blessing that will continue for a long time. I am actively working on myself every day, and I am the one Jesus loves.
