Danny Trejo Confirmed As Keynote Speaker At Alpha Home Luncheon

(SAN ANTONIO, Texas) – December 12, 2016 – Alpha Home – a local addiction treatment center – is excited to announce actor/producer, Danny Trejo, will be the keynote speaker at its upcoming 11th Annual Doorways of Hope luncheon. The event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017, at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade (9821 Colonnade Blvd.) at 11:30 a.m.

Earlier this year, Danny celebrated his 48th year in recovery from drugs and alcohol. He has developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry. From imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, acting to producing and now a restaurateur, Trejo’s name face and achievements are well recognized in Hollywood.

At the luncheon, Danny will be speaking about his own Journey to Recovery, highlighting his transition from imprisonment to his life as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor, both roles that he says bring him the most satisfaction.

“I was an addict and alcoholic and I know that road,” said Trejo. “That road leads to death, institutions or insanity. I’ve been sober for 48 years and have had a great, great life.”

Danny grew up on the streets of Los Angeles. Despite spending the latter part of his early adulthood incarcerated, Danny has worked hard to maintain a drug-free and positive lifestyle. Upon his release from Soledad Prison, Danny became involved in programs aimed at helping those who, like him, battled or are battling drug and alcohol addictions.

“I love playing the bad guy in movies, because the bad guy always dies. That’s the real world. If someone asked me to play a bad guy that always gets away with it, I’d pass,” said Trejo. “That’s the very message I preach to youths who are in crisis and in trouble…the bad guy always loses and the good guy always wins. It’s the one thing movies and real life see eye-to-eye on.”

Alcoholism and addiction affects lives, families and communities across our nation and around the world. Since 1966, Alpha Home has served as a pathway of hope, healing and recovery through spiritually based drug and alcohol services and support.
