Trauma, Addiction, and Recovery

published 3 months ago

Following a childhood and adolescence marked by absent parents, hard drug abuse, severe homelessness, and crime and jail time, Jesse Thistle did what he once believed was impossible - he turned his life around, and in the process discovered his family's Indigenous roots. In "From the Ashes: My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way," he explores the truly dark moments and how he gained the strength to create a new kind of life for himself.
