Mike Ryan, Founder & CEO, Clean Scene

For a quarter of a century, Mike Ryan, has tirelessly and passionately worked to steer youth away from drugs, addiction and crime and to, instead, pursue a purposeful life. He has credibility. Mike was a addict and criminal himself who turned his own life around and has become a nationally recognized leader in addiction prevention, education and addict care.

The Canadian Criminal Justice Association will present Mike Ryan the 2013 Restoration Award, given to former offenders who have overcome the challenge of their past and made an exemplary contribution towards rehabilitation, restoration and a more humane and effective justice system.

The award will be presented to Mike at the 34th Canadian Congress on Criminal Justice in Vancouver, October 2-5, 2013.

Mike’s goals are first to educate and inspire the youth of Alberta to lead drug and crime free lifestyles. Secondly to reduce the stigma of addictions so that recovering addicts can become healthy and accepted members of society with productive futures.Thirdly to create a new facility to treat youth addictions and reduce the numbers waiting for treatment. Lastly to help our communities in Alberta and across our country understand the dangers facing our youth and in doing so reduce the amount of drug related crime.

I congratulate Mike on his well deserved award and thank him for his commitment to youth.
