Where In The World Is Michael DeLeon?


“Ok, IT’S OFFICIAL…I’m moving to Las Vegas!!!!”

That’s right, THE Michael DeLeon, of STEERED STRAIGHT, was in “SIN CITY!!” As tempting as it was, he passed up the opportunity to impersonate Elvis Presley in a drive-thru wedding chapel. Instead, he took his special mission on the road, spreading Steered Straight’s powerful message! Yet again, the inspirational leader is on the move, so sit back and enjoy the show….uh thank you, thank you very much!! 😉
Michael started the week off, with a busy day on the set of “Road To Recovery”, as he sat down with Alicia Hermann and her daughter Ashley. When it airs on May 2nd, you’ll see living proof, that Narcan CAN save a life! Michael says, “Narcan is the most important tool to have, when we have loved ones using and/or suffering.”

Following Alicia and Ashley, Michael and wife Darla sat down with Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.

The busy, rewarding day on the set ended with the incredible recovery story of Andrew Assini.

On April 26th, the day started with the amazing Lyle Fried and James Boozan on a taping of “Road To Recovery.”
