Cameron started using drugs and alcohol in junior high. His addiction continued through high school and led to isolation and homelessness. He was ready to take his own life to escape the chains weighing so heavily on him. Through some divine intervention, Cameron chose to live and enrolled in the John Volken Academy at Welcome Home Ranch. In the Program, Cameron developed self-confidence and took pride in his work. He managed the landscaping at the ranch and found healing in the therapeutic side of working with nature. Cameron thanks the John Volken Academy for giving him his life back.
