Lifted out of addiction
When it was time for Jerome Candelaria to be released from jail, he begged the judge to let him stay.
“I said, ‘Ma’am, I can’t do this no more,’ ” he said. He was tired of going back to the streets and his enemy – crystal methamphetamine.
So the judge held Candelaria until a place opened up for him with the Salvation Army, where he was introduced to Addicts2Athletes, or A2A.
