Echo Malibu Teen Treatment Center announces sponsorship of event to help launch S.U.R.F., Surfers United Recovery Foundation. The foundation is an organization designed to assist surfers and surf industry employees living with chemical dependency issues.

For a long time we have seen youth come to us who have had their first introduction to drugs as part of their participation in the surfing culture. We believe that by supporting S.U.R.F. we are both helping those surfers who have developed chemical dependency issues and creating future, sober role models for youth who are interested in surfing and surf culture.

Echo Malibu Teen Treatment Center has announced sponsorship of Surf Clean/Live Clean benefit to support the launch of S.U.R.F., Surfers United Recovery Foundation. The event will be held at epOxybOx at 602 Venice Boulevard, Venice California on Saturday, August 26th.

According to Dr. Jeffrey Nalin, Executive Director of Echo Malibu Teen Treatment Center, http://www.echomalibu.com the mission of S.U.R.F. is an important one.
