At only 14 years old, Robert's life had already started to spin out of control. The impact of a difficult childhood led to drugs, when he started using as a method of escape. Ironic. Because his escape ultimately led to prison after Robert was convicted for manufacturing methamphetamine.
Robert knew himself well enough to know that without help, he would return to the habits that had defined, and derailed, his life. So he turned to Alvis and his turnaround began.
He spent three months in the Residential Reentry Center program where he received counseling, training and a real opportunity to secure honest work. Robert committed himself to the program and his commitment was rewarded with a manufacturing job that comes with more responsibility than he ever imagined he could handle.
Today, he is excelling at work, having earned multiple industrial certifications after only a short time on the job. He's also repairing relationships with his family, which he proudly describes as awesome.
One important hurdle remains, however. More than anything, Robert wants a relationship with his Dad. But after years of telling his father he was going to change, Robert knows his words are hollow. Only actions will ultimately repair the damage.
Robert is well on his way to that family reunion.
