David Magee

David Magee

Best-Selling Author & Recovery Advocate

Mental health and addiction hit tragically close to home for David Magee. The husband and father of three was on the brink of losing everything, including his marriage and career, when one of his sons died of an accidental overdose. Through a determined, yet painful journey, Magee, his wife, and their two surviving children discovered long-term recovery, hope, healing, and ultimately joy   

Motivated by his family's heart-wrenching story, Magee is now a national recovery advocate, educational speaker, award-winning columnist and TEDx presenter with a mission to change, improve, and save lives in this age of mental health and substance use disorder crisis.
