Jason grew up in a state of turmoil. His parents divorced when he was a baby and he never knew his father. His life spiraled downward when his mom married an abusive alcoholic. He experienced abandonment and depression, never did well in school, and felt like he didn't fit in.
To escape an abusive home life, Jason ran away and turned to drugs and alcohol.
Jason connected with mental health and recovery services after time in juvenile hall. His life seemed to be heading in a better direction. But, drugs and alcohol lurked back into his life.
After 15 years of substance abuse, Jason committed to change his life.
On his 30th birthday, Jason knew he had to change his life for good. He sought treatment at Project Ninety. After completing our 90-day program, Jason continued on his path to wellness by becoming a Project Ninety volunteer and taking part in the 12-step recovery program.
Recovery is possible with the right support.
Today, with over three years of sobriety, Jason is thriving, enjoying life, and reconnecting with friends and family. He is employed in work where he is making a difference in our community and is continuing his college education.
Jason credits Caminar’s Project Ninety division with helping him to turn his life around.
Without the generous support of our donors and funders, Jason may not be here today.
Caminar and our Project Ninety and Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley divisions combined to help more than 20,000 people last year overcome life challenges and move toward resilience, wellness, and independence. We couldn’t have done it without our circle of support.
