Sports World sends professional athletes to share personal life experiences with teens, helping them to recognize the consequences of their choices while challenging them with a message of hope. Jeff Neal, former NFL player with the Houston Oilers, spoke to CD+ patients on October 25. The kids liked what Jeff had to say. Following are a couple of their comments:

“I thought he was really direct, in a positive way, about making changes in our lives so we can be successful.”

“Even though he said he doesn’t have a problem with using substances, he could still relate to us about the challenges we face in our lives based on friends he had that made poor choices with their substance use and then died.  He wanted us to know that it’s possible to do things differently and deal with problems differently than besides just using or getting into trouble.”
