MUSICIAN ~ ACTIVIST ~ SPEAKER
Tom Kennedy goes into drug & alcohol rehabs, hospitals, halfway houses, and jails. He sees firsthand the damage drug & alcohol abuse can do. Tom uses music to carry the message that help is always available; we can use music to trigger good thoughts and positive motivation. The experiences he has to relate are captivating, ironically humorous at times, gut-wrenching, a wake-up call, and always powerful.
"Ask me about the guy who blew $1.5 million on crack, then sold his house to pay for rehab. Left with virtually nothing, his only desire was to live without drugs."
"Ask me about the local girl who died from 'huffing' someone as simple as aerosol keyboard cleaner obtained from a local store."
"I want to give people in rehabs some moments of happiness they thought wouldn't ever exist for them anymore. I want them to know that there is a bright light at the end of the pain tunnel, and that bright light is not an oncoming train - the bright light is a new way of life."
Music can trigger good thoughts, music doesn't have to trigger bad thoughts of the past. We can re-train our thoughts to use any song we've ever heard as a recovery tool, relating the music to present times and thoughts of good living. New perspectives erasing old habits.
Using music to explore new methods of discouraging drug & alcohol abuse, managing conflict, and preventing relapse. Always searching for new methods to achieve success

Check out this locally filmed and produced 3 minute music video - Whenever you see someone that thinks addicts should die, and/or that addicts shouldn't get Narcan, please refer them to this 3 minute music video. Too many people think addicts use drugs to make life like one big party - they don't know that the party was over long time ago by the time addiction sets in - they don't know the horrors of addiction. Maybe this video will help them better understand. (Words, music, and video production by Tom Kennedy.)
