Unfortunately, those transitions to other schools did not work out. Even if Reyes didn’t mention School of Rockit wouldn’t take long for the children to recognize his face and the process would start over immediately. This led Reyes to deal with the use of “drugs, alcohol, sex, food, and self-harm” to numb what was happening. Fortunately, there has started to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Reyes has been sober for two years and, for the first time in a long time, he has begun to answer “yes” when people ask if he is the boy from School of Rock.
