Claire’s Story - From Truancy to Honors
I’ve never had so much sober fun in my life.
I was drinking at my Dad’s house in Alameda where I would go on the weekends and then finally I got kicked out of school with like 7 or 8 other people because they thought I was in a drug dealing ring. They were all my friends but I didn’t do anything. I had missed like 30 or 40 days though.
I walk up to “the cathedral” every day and spend a few minutes thinking about my family and what got me here. I am about to graduate from the high school here at The Camp with honors, and I haven’t had a drink in 145 days. I really like the acupuncture and the “heart math” they have us do. I like the outdoors and there are a few kittens here that I feed every day.
I am going to go to beauty school in San Jose, but I will miss this place because it is so beautiful. I love The Camp.
