When I see incredible people like Charlie taking time out of their busy schedule to give back to the community and spread awareness and education, I’m overcome by a sense of confidence that we can and will make a difference.

A new video from Best Drug Rehabilitation is featuring a must-watch interview between the treatment’s facility’s CEO Per Wickstrom, and celebrated former NFL star tight end and current Hall of Famer Charlie Sanders on drug and alcohol abuse in America.
“As a former athlete, I feel that it’s my obligation to give back to the community, and to do what I can to guide young student athletes and other young people on a path that leads to a successful future, and away from drugs and alcohol,” commented Charlie Sanders, who was selected to the Pro Bowl seven times during his illustrious career with the Detroit Lions. “I think it’s our job to help young people understand that there are no short cuts to success or greatness. It’s a process that involves a tremendous amount of hard work, dedication, and support from the right people along the way.”
“Charlie’s insights are invaluable, and when he walks into a room full of student athletes or young people, they definitely pay attention to what he has to say,” commented Per Wickstrom, who personally battled addiction issues in his youth. “Frankly, I know better than most Americans just how massive the drug and alcohol problem is in our country, because on virtually a daily basis, I see the devastation this epidemic inflicts on individuals, families and communities. But when I see incredible people like Charlie taking time out of their busy schedule to give back to the community and spread awareness and education, I’m overcome by a sense of confidence that we can and will make a difference. Charlie was a hero on the grid iron, and now he’s a hero in the community!”
