Justin lay dying in the ICU. For six days his failing kidneys clung to life. “There were demons all around me,” he says. “I was on my way to the fiery pits of hell.” At just 32 years old, Justin’s addiction had destroyed his body. And he knew he had to change.
Justin’s life began in a turbulent home. He was 7 years old when a loud fight between his parents ended in divorce. By the time he was seventeen, he’d moved nineteen times. During his senior year of high school, he lived in his car until his grandparents took him in until he graduated and started working.
Watch Justin tell the rest of his story as he has found hope in God and a second chance at the Orange County Rescue Mission.
