Brandon Novak, Community Outreach at Banyan Treatment Centers

Film & Television Star, Professional Skateboarder, New York Times Bestselling Author and Community Outreach Coordinator at Banyan Treatment Centers

The Banyan Treatment Centers family is proud to have Film & Television Star, former Professional Skateboarder, and New York Times bestselling author Brandon Novak as part of our Community Outreach team. Brandon’s story is truly inspirational, having recovered from more than 20 years of drug and alcohol addiction. Now with more than four years sober, Brandon works with us here at Banyan helping others who are struggling with addiction to find the help they so desperately need.

Brandon rose to fame at a young age as a professional skateboarder with the renowned Powell-Peralta team. Discovered by Tony Hawk, he was the first pro skater to ever be endorsed by Gatorade, starring in commercials alongside Michael Jordan at just 15 years old. He traveled the world with Bucky Lasek and Bam Margera, and later went on to star in the hit MTV Shows Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union. As part of the infamous Jackass crew, Brandon appeared in the motion picture series box office hits with the mischievous pranksters and was catapulted to super stardom. It seemed he had it all.

Brandon’s story, however, took a dark turn, leading him to the depths of despair as a result of an addiction to heroin. Once a multi-millionaire, Brandon lost everything, eventually finding himself homeless on the streets of Baltimore. He was deemed unfixable and even his mother lost hope; she had purchased a cemetery plot for Brandon, as she was sure he would die.

Now with more than four years sober, Brandon has risen from the ashes and become a living example that recovery is possible. These days Brandon travels the country speaking to government officials, community residents, at risk youth, and prisoners. His message is simple: “If I can recover, so can you. The disease of addiction is not a death sentence. Your history does not have dictate your future, and as long as you’re breathing it’s never too late.”

Brandon takes the time to speak with anyone who is stuck in the grips of addiction and looking for help. He speaks with parents, spouses, and loved ones of those who are struggling, offering a message of hope and recovery. In fact, he provides a direct cell-phone number so that anyone who needs to can reach him directly. He has helped countless individuals find the treatment they need, and the Banyan Treatment Centers family is proud to have him on board.
