I started smoking marijuana during my sophomore year of high school. Most of my friends also smoked, and I let my desire to fit in direct my choices. This led me to rebel, and my grades began to suffer. After a bit of research, my mom found the PAYH website and my parents decided to place me here. At first, I was told just to try it out for 3 months, and that I could leave if it wasn’t going well. At the end of that 3 months I made the decision to stay and finish the program.
