Fentanyl Awareness – One Pill Can Kill

“Fake & Fatal” – the Truth About Fentanyl
Fentanyl, heroin’s synthetic cousin, is one of the deadliest drugs in the world.

Fake & Fatal - One Pill Can Kill

Unfortunately, the rate of fatal teen overdoses is on a steep upward trend with fentanyl, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s important that students, teachers, school administrators, parents and community officials get a thorough fentanyl education so they know more about it and how to handle its effects.

Our in-depth presentation teaches students how the epidemic started, how it’s getting worse and how they can stop it, as well as the evolution from opioids to heroin. They are provided with methods on how to avoid involvement and prevent it from affecting them personally so they are able to make good decisions and right choices.

We also offer the only fentanyl curriculum available.  It’s time to find out with good fentanyl instruction so we can stop lining the pockets of drug cartels and drug dealers with no concern for its effects on our youth!

Michael DeLeon giving thumbs up

Our Founder

Through his personal journey with addiction, Michael DeLeon found his passion: to educate today’s youth to stay on the right path when it comes to serious life issues, especially drugs. He is the #1 booked school presenter in the country.

Upon his release from prison in 2007, Michael founded Steered Straight, Inc., a non-profit organization designed to carry an important message to youth on the extreme dangers of drugs, gang involvement and associated criminal activity.

Michael’s message resonates with students, teachers and parents, giving them down-to-earth direction on how to deal with making positive choices regarding real life issues.

What Educators Are Saying…

“Michael has a wonderfully powerful message to give, and the kids respond to him well. He is captivating and very “real”, and the kids just soak up the information he puts out.”

Steered Straight – Impacting Today’s Youth

In this era of addictions, overdoes and drug poisonings, the message is vital…but so is the messenger.  Kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. The messenger must be believed for the message to get through.

Steered Straight, Michael DeLeon and our Recovery Army of speakers do this effectively and powerfully, which is why audiences say they have never been impacted on these issues like seen through the Steered Straight program.
