The LTM Foundation was born out of the tragedy of losing Louie Theodore Miceli (LTM) to a Substance Use Disorder (SUD) at age 24. Read a letter from his Mom, Felicia Miceli, that provided the inspiration for the formation of LTM.
Louie was a loving and kind young man who put his family first. He 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.
Since the foundation was formed in August 2012 we have been honoring the memory of Louie and his passion of helping others through programs that promote student awareness of drug misuse and provide support for families affected.
Learn more about Louie and others who have lost their lives to substance use on our Memorial Page.
MEET LOUIE's MOM
As LTM Foundation President, Felicia is a strong and vocal advocate for community education and drug prevention programs. She supports holding drug manufacturers accountable for the nation's opioid epidemic. And she has been a friend to many who have needed her support when their families have been affected by drug misuse. She is truly an inspiration!
In 2017, Felicia was chosen by the National Safety Council (NSC) to participate in their "Prescribed to Death" national campaign that highlights the dangers of over prescribing opioids. Click here to see the powerful 3 minute video that features her.
LTM FOUNDATION RECOGNITION
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.
To help us expand our efforts to prevent SUD through awareness, education and support, please make a donation to LTM today. LTM is a registered 501(c)(3) and we use every dollar to carry on Louie’s passion of protecting others and the fight against misuse.
