Garrett Hade serves as the Los Angeles outreach coordinator for Facing Addiction. Additionally, he's the chief financial officer for D4 Strategy, a cross-platform development agency for non-profits and independent brands. Hade is a person in long-term recovery from substance use disorder. In 2012, he co-founded D4 Strategy with his best friend, Ryan Hampton, from their recovery residence in Pompano Beach, FL, where the duo met in treatment for heroin addiction. Hade left Florida shortly after completing his recovery residency and moved to Los Angeles, CA where he assisted in spearheading the unite4:humanity inaugural Oscar weekend gala, a celebration of influencers and celebrities dedicated to making social-impacts through film, art, and media. In 2014, he served as the project lead for the first-ever AITC Foundation Legacy Project dinner featuring President George W. Bush. After losing multiple friends to drug-related overdoses in 2015-2016, Hade rededicated his passion and purpose to advocacy in an effort to put an end to the addiction crisis in America.
