Crystal Vallee is a speaker with Steered Straight who motivates and educates youth and families about the dangers of running from pain and abusing drugs and alcohol. She shares the struggles and trauma that preceded her incarceration for a drug-related car accident, and how she found deep purpose in helping others avoid the path she took.

On this episode, Crystal talks to Matt about:

  • Growing up in a dysfunctional family and feeling like she didn’t fit in at home which led to struggles throughout her life
  • Losing a friend to murder at a young age and the damage caused by the lack of proper grief counseling 
  • Experiencing the trauma of losing her first love to suicide and being sexually assaulted and using drugs to cope
  • Being incarcerated and getting to share her story at schools through NJDOC’s Project Pride program
  • Getting a job at Steered Straight directly after her release and continuing her mission of educating youth
  • How hearing her story can save students and change lives
  • The way she empowers youth by telling them they are worth it because her belief that she was worthlessly led to poor life decisions for years 
  • Her New Jersey recovery community and the importance of giving back
