David started using drugs and alcohol to cope at a very young age. He used to escape the reality that his family was imperfect. During his addiction, David struggled with shame, guilt, and self-worth. David blamed himself and others for not being in his children’s life. David came through Waypoint in 2016 with reservation to drink and smoke once the program was completed. Very quickly David found himself right back in the bondage of addiction and again separated from his kids. David returned to Waypoint in 2022 to find something that was more valuable than just himself. He was sick and tired of all the chaos and hurt. David surrendered himself to Christ and gave God all the control.
