Probation Services Week 2018
HIGHLIGHT: Sacramento County Probation Break Away Bike Program

Josh’s Story of Recovery
San Benito County

My name is Josh and this is my story of recovery for the San Benito probation department. I started using drugs at a very young age even though I came from a good family. I was a decent student and a great athlete with a bright future ahead of me. I Started hanging out with friends that already had some addictions. I started smoking weed at 13 and graduated to cocaine and meth by the time I was a junior in high school. I dropped out shortly after my junior year had started. I was a functioning addict and my job was a way of means to support my habit.
