  3. Was there a moment when you started to believe you could choose recovery at a young age?
  4. How did you build a community?


“I didn’t feel young at all. I felt a million years old. And so tired, so tired. And my concern was not that it was going to kill me. My concern was, what if it goes on like this forever. That would be unimaginable.”
Madelyn Padilla, UN Admissions Specialist
