Louie Theodore Miceli (LTM) lost his life to a heroin overdose at age 24. He was a loving and kind young man who put his family first. His favorite day was Sunday because he loved family dinner at his parents home. Louie was an accomplished athlete and played football on the State Championship teams at Driscoll Catholic High School. He was a popular student and extremely loyal to his team and school. Louie felt strongly about protecting the ones he loved, especially his younger brother Vinny.
LTM was formed in August 2012 to honor the memory of Louie and to continue his passion of protecting others from harm. Though educational programs and ongoing support, LTM is focused on prevention through awareness, helping those struggling with addiction find the right resources and providing ongoing support for their families. To date, LTM has presented at more than 100 schools and community events and reached over 50,000 students. If you would like to request a speaker for an event, please click here.
Only two years after the foundation was formed, LTM was a proud recipient of the 2014 Drug Free Hero Award. The Award was presented by The Foundation for a Drug Free World, a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug free. This was the first year the nonprofit awarded Drug-Free Hero Awards. The award was accepted by Louie’s Mom, Felicia Miceli who said; “I know my son would be very proud of what the organization created in his memory has accomplished.”
In 2015, LTM was recognized for Community Service and Leadership by the Dream Center for Recovery, a comprehensive rehabilitation treatment center.
