He wanted to grow up to be a skater just like him, and his dreams finally came true. Recently, Brandon toured with Punk Rock and Paintbrushes, a company that manages artists who love art and music. Through PRPB, Brandon has been able to work with skateboarders and artists like Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Jason Adams, and Matt Hensley.
During the Punk Rock and Paintbrushes tour, Brandon and Christian toured Midwest cities like Chicago, St. Louis, and Detroit with skateboarders, tattoo artists, musicians, etc. The motivating factor behind these artists participating in PRPB is that they all wanted to help create a better outcome in this world and bring joy through skateboarding and creativity. With their participation, the funds raised are being used to cover the cost of residency for an entire month in sober living homes for individuals in need. This will allow the individual time to get on their feet and find a job to be able to pay their rent moving forward, giving them a better chance at success in recovery. As a recovery advocate for Banyan Treatment Centers, Brandon spoke on these tours about his heroin addiction and sobriety.
When asked about doing this tour, Brandon said, “skateboarding and sobriety have given me everything drugs and alcohol ever promised me.” He truly looked forward to this tour so that he could share his life journey and his resource, Novak’s House. Together, they raised funding for Novak’s house, a sober living home for men. Brandon started Novak’s house to help those struggling with addiction and offer opportunities of sober living for men in a safe and judgment-free environment where they could find solace during the early stages of addiction recovery.
Now 6 years sober, Brandon Novak has taken it upon himself to help others find success in their recovery from substance abuse. As a former addict turned certified intervention specialist, Brandon recognizes the need for men's sober living facilities and other services to offer people in these situations everything they need to achieve long-term sobriety.
