The critical issue of drugs in sports and society is the topic of a new video interview between Best Drug Rehabilitation’s founder Per Wickstrom, and former MLB pitcher with the San Diego Padres and current Wall Street executive Ted Dutcher.
“In sports as well as in other areas of life, people can find themselves in situations where the pressure to achieve and succeed is overwhelming,” commented Ted Dutcher. “Many of them look for ways to achieve their potential, and believe that drugs and alcohol can be a tool. Unfortunately, they soon discover that it’s a crutch. What we need to do is break down barriers that are happening at home and in family life. We need to give parents the education and resources they need to be loving and firm at the same time, so that they don’t unwittingly become enablers to their children’s addiction issues down the road.”
“Ted’s insight that we need to support parents is absolutely essential,” commented Per Wickstrom. “And that’s why we’re envisioning a kind of 'Addiction 101' class, where we bring parents into the schools and mentor them on how to communicate with their kids, how to ask the right questions, and if necessary, how to do a drug test. We also want to develop policies that parents can learn from and adopt at home, so that they don’t feel alone and helpless as their kids head down the wrong path – one that leads to a hospital, jail, treatment facility – or in some cases, the morgue.”
