Obi was living the American dream. Growing up in Kenya was hard, especially in his abusive family. But now he’d fallen in love with an American girl, gotten married and moved to Portland where they would soon give birth to their first child.
The dream didn’t last. As a child, Obi coped with the abuse he received by getting high. That lifelong addiction still haunted him, destroying his marriage and his job. After just a few years in the U.S., Obi wandered homeless – and deeply hurting. “I woke up with such intense hopelessness,” he remembers. He wanted out of his addiction, but how?
Obi did that at The Harbor.
