I have a way to help I have been through it all

by Darell Padilla
(Espanola, New Mezico)

I wrote a book called The Devil's Playground and need help getting it published. It will make a difference. With a background like mine I am quickly judged. I have screwed up in my past but am now clean and want to make a difference.

I lost my 3 kids my girlfriend and I both got clean together and now have them back. I went to jail for 2 and 1\2 years and worked on a book. I know it will make I difference and will show sobriety is possible even for the worse of the worse.

I was a benzo, opiate, cocaine, and methadone recovering addict. I have the most unbelievable story. I just don't want to share it because it is one hell of a story and one of a kind. Once my book gets out there it will be shared so that it is not stolen and used to help others find themselves and their sobriety again.

An addict is a lost person who needs to be found again and I can help do that.
