ENTERPRISE, Ala.(WDHN)—At Enterprise High School, one of the most sought-after anti-drug speakers nationwide spoke about the challenges facing young people.

Michael DeLeon is the founder of “Steered Straight”. He presented his message to all Enterprise
City school sixth-through-twelfth-grade students.

From his own personal experience of being addicted to drugs, and spending half his life “behind bars”.
Deleon has made several films of young people getting hooked on vaping, alcohol, and
marijuana.

With “deadly” fentanyl coming in, DeLeon says communities are seeing more and more young people “overdosing” and “dying” and it’s important to reach students as young as possible.

In 2020, DeLeon and his wife, Darla, were recipients of the President’s Volunteer Service award.
