*CANCELLED* Message of Hope & Recovery with Brandon Novak (Member of infamous Jackass crew, Pro Skateboarder, New York Times best selling author, & Outreach Coordinator at Banyan Treatment Centers

CLEARBROOK & THE RECOVERY BANK PROUDLY PRESENT…..MESSAGE OF HOPE & RECOVERY WITH BRANDON NOVAK 

Brandon Novak- Film & Television Star, Professional Skateboarder, New York Times Bestselling Author & Community Outreach Coordinator at Banyan Treatment Centers. 

Addiction cost Brandon Novak a professional skateboarding career, and a TV job that netted him millions.  He lost his friends and family, but never his mother’s love.  Years later, Brandon is sober and helping others like him turn their lives around!

Brandon rose to fame at a young age as a pro skateboarder with the renewed Powell-Peralta team.  Discovered by Tony Hawk, he was the first pro skater to ever be endorsed by Gatorade, starring in commercials alongside Michael Jordan at just 15 years old.  He traveled the world with Bucky Lasek and Bam Margera, and later went on to star in the hit MTV Shows Viva La Bam & Bam’s Unholy Union.  As part of the infamous Jackass crew, Brandon appeared in the motion picture series box office with the mischievous pranksters and was catapulted to super stardom.  It seemed he had it all…

Brandon’s story, however, took a dark turn, leading him to the depths of despair as a result of an addiction to herion.  Once a multi-millionaire, Brandon lost everything, eventually finding himself homeless on the streets of Baltimore.  He was deemed unfixable and even his mother lost hope; she had purchased a cemetery plot for Brandon, as she was sure he would die.

Now with more than four years sober, Brandon has risen from the ashes and become a living example that recovery is possible!   These days Brandon travels the country speaking to government officials, community residents, at risk youth, and prisoners.  His message is simple: “If I can recover, so can you.  the disease of addiction is not a death sentence.  Your history does not have to dictate your future, and as long as you’re breathing it’s never too late.”

Brandon takes the time to speak with anyone who is stuck in the grips of addiction and looking for help.  He speaks with parents, spouses, and loved ones of those who are struggling, offering a message of hope & recovery.  In fact, he provides his cell phone number so that anyone who needs to can reach him directly.

WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO CLEARBROOK & BRANDON AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO THIS EVENING OF HIS EXPERIENCE, STRENGTH & HOPE!!!!
