As told to middle and high school assemblies all over the country. Reaching out to young people with Kevin's story.
Heroin Awareness presentation by Larry Glenz to Seaford HS (2014)
Larry Glenz, Author of Forgiving Kevin, as guest on LI In Crisis
As the author of Forgiving Kevin, Larry has had many opportunities to speak about his experience as a father of a heroin addict.
His speaking engagements include a PowerPoint presentation that supplements his story of his son’s 7-year addiction and ultimate fatal overdose at the age of 27.
Mr. Glenz continues to speak in many middle and high schools throughout the Long Island/Metropolitan area and to college athletes in universities such as Yale, St. John’s, LIU Post, and the University of Massachusetts among others. He speaks wherever and whenever invited. This includes small community groups that are fighting the scourge of the opioid epidemic.
Larry’s greatest passion now is to reach young people with an awareness of how easily they can fall into the depths of opioid addiction. The story is powerful, personal, and effective in educating young people of the dangers involved with the high school and college drug culture. Although it is a cautionary tale, it is ultimately a message of love, forgiveness, and the value of a connection to one’s Higher Power.
