"Tired of living the insanity, waking up wondering where and I going to get my next fix from," he said.
The Salvation Army's program offers room and board and spiritual based drug and alcohol counseling for up to 18 men at a time - at no cost. One of the biggest elements to the care - work therapy.
"It brings out our skills, and the best of what we are," Les said.
"As you get here, you get the desires that all of us should have: to have a good job, pay taxes to have a home, to have good, stable relationships," said Major Tim Williford of the Salvation Army.
Les said that working in the kitchen every day keeps his mind off drugs, and keeps him away from his past.
"The people I hung out with are in prison for the rest of their lives - or dead. Bottom line," he said.
Two months clean, and the program, motivate Les to keep working, and keep looking forward.
"It has brought me back from death to life," he said. "When I get out I will know how to live life on life's terms today."
