Tacking Opioids Through Prevention for Athletes: The First Choice and a Second Chance - special event


The Mercer Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction is hosting a special event on Thursday, April 8th at 7pm -  "The First Choice and a Second Chance" featuring Stephen Hill, founder of Speak Sobriety.  Stephen is a motivational speaker, author and advocate for substance abuse prevention. He graduated with honors from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Brooklyn Law School.

After suffering from addiction for over a decade, Stephen turned his mess into a message by innovating a dynamic program and presenting to thousands of students, educators and parents for over 200 schools and coalitions. His memoir A Journey To Recovery was a new release best-seller on Amazon, and he has been featured on several shows for his expertise in prevention, treatment, recovery and criminal justice.

On Thursday, April 8, 2021, 7:00pm - 8:30pm, Stephen will speak about his struggles with addiction and share his inspiring story of recovery with a focus on student-athletes and opioids. There will be a virtual Q&A following the presentation.   This presentation is intended for School Administrators, Athletic Directors, Coaches, School Nurses and Parents/Guardians.
