Warren came to the Mission in July 08; and entered into the program. I prayed for him in the back yard for his addictions and his arm, that was in a cast. He was worried about having surgery and did not have any medical insurance. Warren never touched another drug, alcohol or cigarettes the entire time at the Mission; and the doctor removed the cast and said the bone was healed; and he had full use of the arm in a couple of weeks; and carried large garbage cans on his shoulder using that arm. Warren didn't experience any withdrawals; even from cigarettes. He moved into his own place one day before I left the Mission. Warren also returned to his shoe shine business. Warren was in the Mission program for 11 months.
