Our Mission

Inspired by late Sublime front man Bradley Nowell, the Nowell Family Foundation provides addiction recovery services to the music community through the combined strength of the industry and those who have been touched by the power of music.

The Nowell Family Foundation proudly presents Bradley’s House, a residential recovery facility that provides treatment options for people in the music industry with opioid addiction regardless of their financial situation. Phase 1 -- a transitional sober living -- opens on December 1, 2023, in Southern California.

The Nowell Family Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation.

Who We Are

For years, the Nowell family has sought ways to help others avoid the tragedy of drug overdose. While working with longtime family friend Todd "Z-Man" Zalkins, who helped Jakob Nowell (Bradley's son) get clean and sober, the plan to create the Nowell Family Foundation evolved.

As Papa Nowell (Bradley's father) says, "We have finally found something we truly believe in doing – and that's helping others who are struggling with addiction."

Kellie Nowell (Bradley's sister), who is actively involved as the executive director, is dedicated to the growth of the Foundation and to ensuring its stability, allowing it to serve others for many years to come.
