Overcoming Obstacles

High school students in Diane Locascio’s psychology class heard an important message on May 13 when Michael Perso and Krystle Stoddard, founders of the organization www.iwantcontrolback.com, visited the school to share their story of drug addiction and their journey to recovery. The students were given the opportunity to ask questions and have an open discussion with Perso and Stoddard about the obstacles they had overcome and what helped them conquer their addiction.

According to www.iwantcontrolback.com, the organization strives to bring awareness to others about the epidemic of drugs and alcohol, and to get people help to regain control of their lives.
