Doug is the ideal role model to show kids that they don’t need drugs and alcohol to be a success, to have fun, and to lead a great life.
(PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Per Wickstrom, the CEO of Best Drug Rehabilitation, has been featured in a new video interview with former NFLer Doug English on the challenges of youth alcohol and drug abuse in America.
“To me, the key is to educate young people about the fundamental fact that most of the messages they are bombarded with each day have one purpose: to enrich the person who’s sending them,” commented Doug English, who was a standout defensive tackle with the Detroit Lions from 1975 to 1985. “We’re human beings, and we’re smart enough and capable of hearing these messages and saying: `I don’t want to look like that guy. To me, that’s not cool. I don’t want to act like that. I don’t need to drive that to be somebody or smoke that, or inhale that, or drink that. I don’t have to.’ Choose happiness. To me, that’s the message.”
“Doug is the ideal role model to show kids that they don’t need drugs and alcohol to be a success, to have fun, and to lead a great life,” commented Per Wickstrom. “And his point about kids these days being bombarded with messages is extremely important. I’m particularly concerned about alcohol advertising, which technically isn’t supposed to target young people, but it’s clear that young people are affected and influenced.”
