Born into addiction as a baby, surrounded by addiction as a child, then seeking validation from his father all led Tyler down a path of substance abuse which eventually landed him in prison. Losing his family and feeling utterly hopeless, Tyler acknowledges that he hit rock bottom, “I had given up on life itself.” After a failed suicide attempt, he cried out to God and drove through the night to find help at Heartland.
Tyler credits his turnaround to surrendering his life to Jesus and trusting in others. Reunited with his family and embracing fatherhood, “I’m free to be a dad and I’m free to be a husband and I’m free to be a child of God.” His message is simple: hold on to hope. If you’re facing similar struggles, Tyler’s journey shows us that change and freedom are possible through Jesus Christ. Reach out to Heartland Recovery today and see how we can help you.
