About Bob Stutman The UP Experience 2011 Bob Stutman and Bush Sr. Bob Stutman and Connie Chung Bob Leading DEA

Welcome to the The Stutman Group

DEA BadgeI am a former Special Agent of 25 years with the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration. My last six years with the DEA I headed the New York Office, DEA's largest. In all of my experience I have learned three absolute facts, which many Americans fail to understand. First, law enforcement will never make drugs completely unavailable in the U. S. Second, most adults know almost nothing about the world of kids and drugs (how many of us know what Special K and Roofies are?). And third, drugs are devastating our communities, homes and workplaces, and we fail to deal with this in a way that will make any substantial change.

Judge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski

Judge JodiJudge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski thought she had seen it all, witnessing first-hand the devastating effects surrounding interpersonal violence, substance abuse and addiction within our families, our children and our communities. That is until 2008, when her life was forever changed.


In 2008, Judge Jodi, then a zealous Metro Detroit felony prosecutor with a perfect trial record consisting of mostly violent crimes, sat by the hospital bedside of an 18 month old boy who lay dying in a Detroit hospital. A possible murder case to be tried, he was the victim of overdose after consuming his mother’s opioid medications. For 8 months, she sat by his side when no one else could or would.


It was then that she knew – with certainty - something more had to be done. Drug abuse is killing our most innocent.

How We Can Help

For the first time in history, automobile accidents are the second leading cause of death by accident in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control announced recently that in 2009 (the most recent year for which we have statistics):




We have become a society where the prevailing pressure on our youth is to "do drugs". How did we get here? And how do we deal with this devastating and debilitating program that is affecting our families, our communities and our workplace?


I think it is important to speak open and honestly about the issues of substance abuse whether it be to kids, parents, community leaders or employers in order to tackle head on the "real" world of substance abuse. Based on my 40 years of experience, I will bring to the forefront the best research and knowledge available, organizing and enhancing the information with clarity and purpose to assure my audience can understand, relate, and utilize the results showing what we're up against and how we can empower and protect our families, our communities and our workplace. Each year I speak to thousands of students, school administrators, law enforcement, medical professionals and employers across the country. My interactive sessions provide valuable information in a factual and passionate manner so that those who hear me will walk away saying "we have to deal with this issue now". Together, I believe we can tackle what I consider to be the greatest health issue in our country today.

By the time many companies think about drugs and alcohol in the workplace, they’ve been blindsided by a lawsuit. They often think they have the problem under control. Unfortunately, they do not realize the costs of, not only the measurable ones such as absenteeism, but also completely unexpected accidents that may end up in punitive damage suits, for which they are not insured. Bob will bring the best research and knowledge available showing us what we’re up against and how we can empower our workplace, our families and our communities.
