Randy Garza, Founder and Director of New Vision Outreach
I went through my transformation from a beaten down, strapped in bondage substance abuser to being set free by the power of Jesus Christ. On 10-5-09, God worked through my great-niece and nephew, who told me they were tired of watching their uncle get drunk every day. I have never looked back, nor do I intend on going back to the destructive lifestyle that I once lived for 35 years of my life.
I immediately began an aggressive approach on my recovery by attending approximately 10 faith based recovery meetings a week over the next year, along with getting involved with a local church, and having strong spiritual men in my life. In 10-1-2010, a group of Christians and I began a ministry, Loving Life, to assist people struggling with drug addictions. I was a part of that ministry for 4 years before leaving and taking a year to establish relationships with 22 residential recovery programs in 7 different states. Through God's guidance, I began New Vision Outreach on 3-1-2016 with a group of God fearing volunteers. Our goal is to rid our community from the destruction that drugs cause families. We just want to get people's minds clear from the toxicity of the chemicals induced in the brain and point them toward Jesus so they will have hope and strength while in recovery.
