Los Angeles. With over 700,000 drug users, 6 of whom die every day, it’s no revelation that it’s officially classified as a “high-intensity drug zone.” But today, former addict David Sanchez is hell-bent on changing that by giving kids the street smarts they need to make the right choice about living drug‑free.
Born in Redondo Beach, California, David Sanchez’s downward trajectory into addiction began at age 9 when a neighbor offered him marijuana. By the time he turned 15, his life was consumed by alcohol and methamphetamine, leading to a first stint in juvenile jail. Graduating to heroin and time in multiple penitentiaries, the turning point came in 2012 when he finally conquered his addiction. In 2014, David co-founded Beacon of Hope, the largest adult sober living home in Los Angeles. Remembering how his nightmare began with that first hit, he founded Strike Out Against Drugs to educate his community about the truth about drugs using the Foundation for a Drug-Free World materials. To date, David Sanchez has reached around 1.5 million people with an anti-drug message and changed the lives of countless kids.
