"I started using drugs very late in my life. I was 29 years old. My life became so messed up I didn’t know what to do so I tried the easy way out.
I tried to commit suicide by hanging myself. I was referred to Vince’s Place at the Rescue Mission of Trenton.
Since I’ve been here, the program has helped me regain my self-respect and get my soul back. I formed a bond between myself and God and am starting my life over.
Drugs have destroyed my life, but now things are so much better for me." — a former resident
