    Nate Lastinger

    Nate Lastinger

    This week on A Place For My Head, Brandon Thompson chats with Nate Lastinger, a friend who has overcome an uber-religious childhood and subsequent substance abuse to find success.

    Nate came from a Christian family who grew up wanting to be different in his own way. Along the path growing up in his teens, he felt alone inside his mind even though outside he seemed totally fine. Leading on in his late teens and early-20’s, he went from helping people with drug addiction to doing any drug he knew just to feel something of happiness. By his mid-20’s, he was out of drugs but used alcohol as a crutch, which has led him now to be in a stable place in life as he reached his late 20s into the 30s
