Austin came into the Heartland Recovery program with nothing. Multiple arrests and a parole violation had him facing up to 30 years of jail time. When the option of going through the Heartland Recovery Program was put on the table, Austin thought he’d get sober and try living a life the right way so his parents could be proud of him. “I didn’t realize the depth and gravity of that ‘right way,'” he now realizes. “In my moments of deepest despair, God snatched me. He used my own will and my own consequences and He turned it for good.”

After graduation, Austin looks forward to being able to point others in the right direction, and has a message for people on the same path. “Don’t give up! Don’t quit before your miracle happens.”
