Pete was a kid torn from one parent and then torn again.  He was moved from place to place with little supervision.  Angry and hurt he acted out and was seemingly arbitrarily institutionalized at an early age.  He would tell you that the youth homes and jails were “gladiator schools” where he learned the rules of the street and animal survival.  Leaning on his survival instincts and increasingly on booze and drugs Pete ended up in a California treatment center.  He will tell you that he has learned about humility, peeling away the layers and has a deeper understanding of what it means to have character defects.  He’ll tell you that he’s on his way back to innocence.
