Sam's Story

I had a very normal childhood. I was a good kid. I was an alter boy. I played on sports teams. In high school, my friends and I started to experiment with weed and alcohol. An older student told me that you could look around for some pain pills in your house and take one of those. I was probably 14 or 15 at the time. I think my brother had had a surgery, there were some pills in the house, and I found some. I only took one, and I'll never forget that experience for the rest of my life.
