“Michael credits his participation in a program called Adult & Teen Challenge USA for helping turn his life around. After going down the wrong path during most of his life, he said the program helped him view his past in a different light.
‘I came to the realization that everything I was doing wrong was because of my own will,” he said. “Everything that was going on in my life was because of myself. I was causing all this pain for my parents, my sisters, my sons that I lost… This program helped me to seek the better side of life – one that’s paved by God.'”
