Daniel keeps using the same word to describe his life of drug addiction before coming to Kokomo Rescue Mission: Lost.
He lost his job. Lost what was left of his money. Lost his car. Lost his apartment. Lost his family. And, for a while, lost his freedom during a jail sentence.
“I lost everything,” Daniel says. “I lost track of what I was doing, and all of that led me here.”
“Here” being the Mission, which Daniel’s grandmother suggested at a time when Daniel felt quite lost himself.
“If she’s giving me that advice, I’m going to take it, because my grandma wouldn’t steer me wrong,” says Daniel, 39. “So I gave it a shot.”
And he’s taken advantage of that shot, diving headfirst into our recovery program and working hard to turn things around.
“It really helps,” he says. “They care about me, there’s good structure, and they hold me accountable. I’m sober and clear-headed now.”
Now the manager at a local pizza joint, Daniel likes his life today.
“Without the Mission, I’d probably be either dead or in jail,” he says. “Instead, now I have a better understanding of what’s going on, and I have a desire to do good. All because of the Kokomo Rescue Mission.”
