I was born and grew up in a normal family. Parents wished me the best. But street school seduced me more than parents' house. Street taught me how to smoke, drink alcohol and use drugs. At eighteen I began to use intravenous drugs. For that I was in need of money, so I started stealing. It ended up in jail. I tried to stop taking drugs on my own, with the help of parents and doctors, but it was all useless. After a short time it all started again - drugs, theft and prison. It lasted for 18 years. I became a completely destroyed man. I lost everything and was alone with my problems, because everyone had turned away from me. From acquaintances I found out about social adaptation centre "Independence" and had decided to go there. In the centre I gained freedom from drugs and changed the way of thinking. This helped me to start a new life. Thanks to the centre!
