Scott Weeman’s trouble with alcohol began as a junior in high school. In college, this habit became destructive. He started drinking and doing drugs every day. He lost his college scholarship and was forced to return home. After treatment when he was 21, he fell in love with a girl and stayed sober for eight months with what he calls a “white-knuckle approach.” When he began drinking again, tensions rose in their relationship and eventually she left. After further isolation, he reached for help.
