David Van Der Velde got clean and sober in 1988 at the age of 19, close to death from his own struggles with drug addiction and alcoholism.

Now 32+ years clean and sober, he has been consistently active in his recovery community by mentoring others, serves on recovery and youth related non-profit Boards such as LifeWorks and the West Hollywood Recovery Center, and serves on panels at institutions speaking from his own experience about recovery.
