“fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative”

 From one of our Graduates:

“I don’t think God created me to die a junkie.”

“I don’t want to set my goals too high right now—I have to finish this program first—but one day I’d like to work with children as a social worker or as a drug counselor. My brother’s friend’s daughter was really bad into drugs. I talked to her about the rehab I went through, and now she’s turned her life around, so I feel like I’ve already made a difference with somebody. I think because of what I’ve been through, I can help other people in the same situation. I want to show kids and teenagers that there’s a different way, that there’s a way out.  I want to give back.”
