The Baltimore native has never kept his mother’s substance abuse a secret and has been very upfront about his experiences. Now Mario is using his experiences to help other kids in a substance abuse program targeted to middle and high school students in the Baltimore area. The Mario Do Right Foundation and the REACH! School have teamed up for a:
program will promote healthy alternatives to smoking, alcohol and drug use. It will also teach the kids techniques to resist peer pressure to engage in these activities. There will also be referrals for parents to the University of Maryland Medical Center for substance abuse treatment. [SOURCE]
Way to go Mario for turning a negative experience into positive energy.
