SECOND CHANCE (RECOVERY ASSISTANCE)
Organized by: Matthew Evans
First off I would like to start by saying how grateful I am that you care enough to even take the time to read this. For many years I have been looking for my door to open so that I can take this faithful leap and I know that opportunity is now! My father who was most recently a software engineer but formerly a History teacher has always said that "if history has anything to show us it is that great things occur when an injustice bothers someone enough that they do something about it." My name is Matthew Brandon Evans and I am 32 years old. I was in the war on drugs for thirteen years of my life and destroyed mine as well as many others life in the process. I utililized my understanding of individuals and the way the street works to manipulate lives to create a better, more lucrative addiction for myself. I was a complete and utter mess putting on the persona of an individual in control. I firmly believe that if your going to teach or assist in the understanding of addiction then you MUST have gone through addiction yourself.. What good is learning math from someone that can only read? I believe in a society where every individual could be given the opportunity to learn from there past and to look forward to a new horizon where untiy and support are plentiful. A dramatic change from a past of drug abuse. Sometimes people just need to know that someone out theres cares. Let us not forget the individuals that will never have the chance to open there eyes again and truly see the light in front of them. To me its as serious as honoring those past from a war, without having the chance to come home. This truly means the world to me, a thousand tounges couldnt explain the gratefullnes i feel for individuals even taking the time to read this. I plan on continuous education for myself and community outreach programs to make an impact one way or another!! I will post updates and stories of everyone WE help, Im hoping you all hear me, I am making my leap of faith right now.. The time is now!!
