David's Mission

David's mission is to impact our country's youth with a positive message about addiction and recovery.


As children learn to navigate and survive the substance abuse they see around them they may be learning bad habits.


When children have the opportunity to hear what is healthy and not healthy, learning begins. David's passion is to educate through awareness, prevention, and intervention when children are in grade school, middle school, high school, and college. He has spoken to many adult groups as well. 


David would like to continue spreading his message far and wide.  He finds that the Opioid Epidemic in the United States is the leading cause of death in people under 50. David would like to reach people before they even start using substances to cope with stress. For people who already have an addiction, it is not too late.


The Life Recovery Coach's mission is to share the message that alcohol and substance abuse disorders are treatable.


The forecast for Opioid deaths is over 650,000 people in the next ten years. The need to listen to his message is now. David would like to reduction of the number of deaths and hearing his word is an excellent place to start.
