RCMPTalks: Substance Misuse
Nov 10, 2020 - 12:00 PM-13:00 PM (Eastern)
RCMPTalks Substance Misuse featuring former NFL All-Star Alvin Powell Alvin Powell is a former NFL offensive lineman for the Miami Dolphins and the Seattle Seahawks, a former bodyguard to the stars (Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, Madonna…), as well, has appeared in numerous feature films. At 6’5”, 320 pounds, he was an imposing figure on the football field, but nevertheless fell prey to the disease of addiction. Against all odds, Alvin had realized the “American dream” and lost it all, and very nearly his life, to drugs. Following his recovery, Alvin has dedicated himself to the prevention of youth substance abuse as well as helping those in crisis who are currently suffering from the disease of addiction. Alvin will tell you, drugs do not care who you are. They do not discriminate against colour, creed, race, size, economic background or even age (the youngest person he has helped was just 10 years old). Drugs are an equal opportunity destroyer.
