Larry founded Brotherhood Against Drugs in 1995 and began his journey as a motivational speaker for schools, churches, prisons, rehabilitation centers, corporations and various other organizations. “I began to see my life change right before my eyes; from the kid who dreamed about playing in the NBA to an addict hanging out in the streets, getting high, stealing, robbing and lying for drugs. I knew it was time to change, but I just did not have any control left in me. The last time I went to jail was March 2, 1989. I was laying there in the County Jail on one of those little beds, just thinking how my life was so messed up and what could I do to change my ways. And I did. Today, I share my story of how I dreamed, how I struggled and how I survived.” ~Larry D. Johnson, Sr.
