What We Do

For the first time in history, automobile accidents are the second leading cause of death by accident in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control announced recently that in 2013 (the most recent year for which we have statistics): THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH BY ACCIDENT WAS DRUG OVERDOSE.

We have become a society where the prevailing pressure on our youth is to “do drugs”. How did we get here? And how do we deal with this devastating and debilitating program that is affecting our families, our communities and our workplace? We think it is important to speak open and honestly about the issues of substance abuse whether it be to kids, parents, community leaders or employers in order to tackle head on the “real” world of substance abuse. Based on our combined experience of over 55 years, we bring to the forefront the best research and knowledge available, organizing and enhancing the information with clarity and purpose to assure that our audience can understand, relate, and utilize the results showing what we’re up against and how we can empower and protect our families, our communities and our workplace. Each year we speak to thousands of students, school administrators, law enforcement, medical professionals and employers across the country. Our interactive sessions provide valuable information in a factual and passionate manner so that those who hear us will walk away saying “we have to deal with this issue now”. 

Together, we can tackle the greatest health issue in our country today.

Bob Stutman
Bob Stutman is a former Special Agent of 25 years with the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration. During his last six years with the DEA he headed the New York Office, DEA’s largest.

Second, most adults know almost nothing about the world of kids and drugs (how many of us know what Special K and Roofies are?). And third, drugs are devastating our communities, homes and workplaces, and we fail to deal with this in a way that will make any substantial change. READ FULL BIO »


Judge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski
badge-scales2 Judge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski thought she had seen it all, witnessing first-hand the devastating effects surrounding interpersonal violence, substance abuse and addiction within our families, our children and our communities. That is until 2008, when her life was forever changed. In 2008, Judge Jodi, then a zealous Metro Detroit felony prosecutor with a perfect trial record consisting of mostly violent crimes, sat by the hospital bedside of an 18 month old boy who lay dying in a Detroit hospital. A possible murder case to be tried, he was the victim of overdose after consuming his mother’s opioid medications. For 8 months, she sat by his side when no one else could or would. It was then that she knew, with certainty, something more had to be done. Drug abuse is killing our most innocent. READ FULL BIO »
