"I want my life back," Roy shared on a drive back from visiting his ex-wife.
Not much else was said on that drive, just a quiet reflection of the day. Home-cooked enchiladas, a warm hug from his daughter, smiles from his ex-wife, a photo together, and a bag full of tamales and an internal determination to change things for the drive home.
“I’m hoping to get my life back through this," he said, referring to the rehab he was about to do at Salvation Army. "My family, work, rhythm, I want to get it back.”
He had a family, his own landscaping business, and holidays dressed up as Santa Claus to make them laugh. But he struggled, just like every one of us. For him, it was his own internal war that led him to his addiction to drugs, and ultimately his divorce.
