Tristan Humes Surpasses 30 Days in Sobriety

Walking Through the Darkness

Tristan’s addiction began when he was just 11 years old. He started experimenting with pills, which graduated to the use of cocaine and crack in combination with pills by the age of 14. In his young teen years, at 16 years old, Tristan started injecting heroin. He was, without doubt, encapsulated by addiction, and this was only the start of Tristan’s downward spiral.

At 20 years old, he was arrested for various criminal charges. Around this time, Tristan was released under mandatory rehab. Unfortunately, still caught in the gloom, Tristan was introduced to meth at 22 years old.

Residual negative side effects followed. Tristan was kidnapped, shot at, and was sought out by bounty hunters numerous times. But, this wasn’t the end for him. He knew that he needed to turn his life around. After 12 years of addiction, Tristan discovered a way out of the dark life he had created for himself.

Up Towards the Light and Into the Future

Tristan was introduced to Preston and Dustin Durnford, owners of Fresh Start of California, along with the treatment team and was immediately placed into Fresh Start of California’s detox program. He followed that program with the residential program. After completing both programs successfully, Tristan began attending the outpatient program at Coastline Behavioral Health.

In just 47 days in sobriety, Tristan has achieved so much. He has developed authentic, healthy friendships and has reestablished relationships with his parents and brother. Now, his plan is to return to school and work in the plumbing trade in hopes of one day starting his own business.

Full of Gratefulness and Thanks

Tristan is full of gratefulness and thanks. When asked who he would like to thank for his journey to sobriety, Tristan stated, “I appreciate the entire treatment team at Fresh Start of California for giving me another chance to come to receive treatment and always showing me love. Fresh Start of California helped me change my life, and they believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. They were always there for me and always treated me with respect. I encourage anybody dealing with addiction to go to Fresh Start of California.”

It’s a Party: Jacob Moers Hits One-Year of Sobriety!

At the age of 16, Jacob Moers started to travel down the path of addiction. By 17, Jacob was completely encapsulated by darkness and controlled by his need for heroin, meth, and other substances. Until the age of 22, he found himself constantly floundering through the journey to sobriety, never making it beyond the 30-day mark.Jacob Moers

The Change

Before it was too late, Jacob found Fresh Start of California, a detox center in Orange County, and began what would be become the greatest feat in his life—sobriety. It was at this point that his life forever changed, and day by day, he became the best version of himself. During this journey, Jacob developed once-in-a-lifetime friendships with people who genuinely want the best for him and nothing from him in return.

Where He is Now

Now, Jacob’s family celebrates his sobriety with him, and all are forever thankful for the time, energy, and resources that Fresh Start of California has invested in him.

Now that Jacob has planted his roots, he shares the gift of sobriety by helping and being of service to others. Undoubtedly, this gives Jacob the greatest satisfaction he has ever experienced, and it is only up from here.

Thanks to all his hard work, dedication, and strength, along with the help of Fresh Start of California and Epic Transformations, Jacob reached his one-year sobriety anniversary on March 14, 2019, and we could not be more proud. On his free time, you can find Jacob helping others, hitting the gym, and enjoying the beautiful life he was gifted.

Special Thanks from Jacob

When asked who he would like to thank the most, Jacob responded:

Preston and Dustin! I can’t thank them enough. I love those guys and look up to them like older brothers. There are very few people I have met out here, let alone in life, who are as good of guys as they are. I just love them. It’s that simple. As far as other support, I live with a group of solid guys who keep me accountable. I still stay in touch with my sponsor, and, of course, none of this would have been possible without my family. I love Fresh Start of California and Epic Transformations. I have pride when I wear their stuff because I love what it means and stands for. To me, it means having real fun in sobriety and getting back to a life that is fulfilling without drugs and alcohol. Once again, I am truly thankful and grateful to be a part of an amazing program ran by two of the best people I know.
