#15 Drug Free Mindset Rehab Interview with Antoine Brown of Modesto

Today we are excited to have Antoine as our guest.

When was the first time you experienced drinking or drugs?

He was 13 years old when he started smoking weed.

What became your drug of choice?


What or who influenced you to start doing drugs?

Auntie and Uncles

What are some of the things you were doing while you were using?

He was married he was using and then stopped, but didn’t have a hobby to pass time. So he started drinking, and when that was out of control, he had to stop again. He needed something to pass time, so he started chasing women. He was married, had a whole other family in secret with children and went on a cruise with another girl. After the cruise, he lost his job because he was getting kickbacks.  

What was the worst point or the turning point in your life, that you knew you needed help, and then you began to seek help? What happened? What was like emotion like?

After all his foolishness came to an end, his wife still loved him and said that she would be willing to raise his children as if they were her own. There was so was hurt so much that she tried to commit suicide, the paramedics told him if he hadn’t come home, she would have not made it. That was his turning point, for time being.

Now that you’ve recovered, what word of encouragement would you like to give someone who is struggling with addiction?

Just pray, even if you don’t think you know how God answers prayers. 

Thank you from the Drug Free Mind Set Team.
