"If you do what you did, you will get what you got."
Whether your change is to lose weight, quit drugs, or stay out of gangs one aspect of change will be restructuring of
your life. In order to make a successful transition into a new way of life you will need to be able to change your environment
to reflect the new changes that your life is making.
One way to affectively gain a new perspective is to involve yourself in new activities and expand your friend base. You
can get help with this task through involvement in community based programs. Many programs are available in your area if you
spend some time to find them.
Here is a list of programs in the Romeoville/Bolingbrook area.
