Austin Eubanks Known For

Stephen Austin Eubanks (October 7, 1981 – May 18, 2019) was an American motivational speaker on addiction and recovery. He was a survivor of the Columbine High School massacre, in which his best friend, 17-year-old Corey DePooter, was killed and Eubanks was shot in his hand and knee. Eubanks struggled with opioid addiction after the shooting. Eubanks was the chief operations officer for the Foundry Treatment Center.

Austin Eubanks Early life and education

Eubanks was born on October 7, 1981. When he was 11, his father, an engineer, moved the family from a small town in Oklahoma to Denver. After struggling to fit in at a larger school, Eubanks’ parents allowed him to attend Columbine High School out of district. He met his friend Corey DePooter at the end of their freshman year. At age 17, Eubanks was in the library at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold attacked the school. Eubanks ducked under his table with DePooter and another student, Jennifer Doyle. Harris and Klebold soon entered the library and after a while, approached their table. Harris shot and injured Doyle and DePooter. Klebold shot Eubanks in his hand and knee before killing DePooter, with Eubanks witnessing his friend’s death. Harris and Klebold soon after left the library and, fearing that they would return, Eubanks and other survivors fled through the library’s emergency exit. Harris and Klebold would go on to kill 12 students and one teacher, injure 24 others and then take their own lives. Eubanks did not return to Columbine High School after the shooting and was instead privately tutored at home three days a week until he graduated in 2000. Within weeks of the shooting, Eubanks developed an opioid addiction that continued into his twenties. In 2006, Eubanks recognized that he had developed tolerance for prescription medications of oxycodone (OxyContin), Adderall, and alprazolam (Xanax). He then began using cocaine, ecstasy, and alcohol. Starting in 2006, Eubanks entered residential treatment centers three times without success.
