Due to a crack habit, I ended up homeless for over 25 years. I endured 3 prison terms in California and Arizona. Thanks to the Tucson VA SARRTP, I got the help I needed to stop using. After the residential program, I was enrolled in the HUD/VASH program and got an apartment. I was also enrolled in the CWT Program where I worked on the VA grounds while I sought permanent employment. Today, through the VA home loan program, I own a house. I am an over-the-road truck driver. And have been with my wife for over 8 years.

There is a long list of reasons people fall into addiction, but only one reason they get out: effort. I hope you enjoy the life you've earned by that hard work.

I retired from the Navy with some service connected disabilities and worked part-time & temp jobs for quite a while, came close to being homeless but never was. I moved to a different state for a real job and haven't looked back. House is paid for, vehicle is paid for and savings acct is good - but I put the military and it's associated life-style problems behind me.
