Williams is widely known by many for his several successful seasons playing in the NBA. He was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the 1990 NBA Draft. Thereafter, he was sent to the Philadelphia 76ers and after two seasons, found a home with the New Jersey Nets. Williams became one of the NBA’s top rebounders, leading the league in offensive rebounds in 97’-98’. That same year, he went on to play in the 1998 NBA All-Star Game.

In 2000, Williams had to retire due to a career ending injury and as a result, experienced personal struggles. After enduring and overcoming addiction, Williams was inspired to help others. “Our mission is to positively change the lives of the individuals, their families and communities that have all been impacted by addiction. The numbers of victims touched by addiction tragically continues to grow daily. We’re losing lives at an unprecedented rate. If you want to change the outcomes you need to deploy the right solutions. Rebound Institute was named to reflect on my skills as a player in the NBA as well as to describe the difficulties I had bouncing back in life. I want to help people win back their lives by sharing my experience and challenges”.

Innovative and cutting-edge approaches to therapy including hyperbaric and chiropractic treatment, overall health and mindset attention, mentoring, job training and workplace readiness will be stressed alongside core medical and clinical disciplines. Outdoor adventure therapy, a form of experiential group therapy, is also used to increase self-esteem and reintroduce an active, fun and healthy lifestyle.

Even before opening, Rebound Institute has established excellent relationships with local and national organizations. This is a credit to the excellent relationships that Williams has nurtured through the years in addition to the outreach Rebound Spokesman Charles Oakley has provided. Professional and amateur sports leagues and organizations, community groups and individuals have already embraced Rebound Institute and are in the process of formalizing relationships.
