Nazareth started drinking at age fourteen—to fit in, to survive her anxieties.

"I lived that way for sixteen years; through trials and tribulations, I didn't stop. I couldn't!"

Five more years brought three treatment centers, a divorce (after eighteen years in a toxic relationship), two kids, disasters, loss, near death, drugs, two college degrees... The list goes on and on. Nazareth shared her story with ATS because she felt that God was by her side the whole time. She presently helps others in recovery, working at ATS. What did not kill her made her stronger. From survivor to thriver, she is a warrior!
