LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) -He says it was nothing specific. No life altering event. But one day, Jordan Holter began experimenting with drugs.
In 2006, that experimentation included methamphetamine. He was hooked and it was a dark existence. But Holter says, you don’t have to stay there. Through personal determination and help he received through a number of programs, Holter beat the addiction. He’s been clean four years.
As a result, Holter was among the recipients of the Wisconsin Job Honor Awards. Those awards recognize people for overcoming obstacles to employment.
Holter credits a lot of people for his recovery including a program at Western Technical College called Project Proven, a program leading to his employment.
