Joel: A New Creation
Hello, my name is Joel and I am 27 years old. I was born in New Braunfels, Texas, but lived mostly in Auburn, Alabama and Houston, Texas. I started using drugs when I was 16. I was just trying to fit into the crowd. In 2009 I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in Alabama. Since then, I have continually been in and out of county jail and rehabilitation centers. Since I have been here at Adult and Teen Challenge of Texas, I have realized that I never truly let God take control of my life. I have rededicated my life to Him and have been clean and sober since June 20, 2014. I can honestly say that God has opened my eyes because of this ministry.
