Pierre Morais is the founder of The Scared Straight Tour, a highly sought-after speaker and presenter and a recovered addict himself. After addiction almost cost him his life, we went on to obtain a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology with a specialty in addiction. He founded The Scared Straight Tour in 2004 and has taken several thousand youth on tours.
He also travels extensively throughout North America to give talks and lead workshops and has been a keynote speaker at several International Conferences. Teaching other about the dangers of addiction and helping those who are caught up in it has been Pierre’s mission in life. His passion and dedication to this work as well as his knowledge of addiction and what is happening on the streets today combine to make him one of the most powerful speakers you will are ever likely to meet.

My kids were headed down the wrong path and we watched the videos together. It had a big impact on them and they are doing much better now. It was the best money I ever spent. Every parent should do this.

We purchased a Virtual Scared Straight Tour membership for our school and the teachers showed the videos to the students and used it as a launching point for an open discussion about drugs and addiction. It’s one of the best investments we’ve made. I think every educator should have access to this valuable resourse.

We bring a group of our kids down on the tour every year because the education they get there is invaluable. It’s saved many of our kids.
We arranged for a tour for some kids from our school and it was the most powerful experience any of us had ever had. There is no denying the devastation that addiction can cause after seeing the Downtown Eastside.
We brought Mr Morais in for a couple of days of presentation and workshops. His addiction presentations were the most powerful we’ve ever seen and his understanding, respect and appreciation of Native culture were evident in all aspects of his work. He was very well received and liked by everyone who attended.
We had them give us a Scared Straight Tour presentation via live webinar and the effect it had on the kids was profound. Despite the fact that it was not an onsite presentation, the kids were riveted by the harsh reality of how devastating addiction is and how dangerous the drug scene is today. We are definitely going to do this more often.
