We couldn’t be more grateful and honored to have L.T. speak to our clients.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, has published a new video featuring a riveting speech that was delivered to clients and staff by NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence “L.T.” Taylor.
Taylor, whose struggles with addiction both during and after his legendary career are well documented, shared several powerful insights with the standing room only crowd.
“I didn’t understand at first that the way to get sober is in everybody, it’s right in here,” Taylor said pointing to his heart. “Everybody has the key. Everybody has the secret. I didn’t think I’d ever figure it out, but I’m still standing, I’m feeling better, and I’m just happy that I could be here to share some of my experiences. Sobriety is not the end of the world. It’s a pretty good life.”
“For several years, L.T. was easily the most feared player in football, and in many people’s view he re-defined the linebacker position and changed the game,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “But in my view, the courage that L.T. displayed on the field season after season takes second place to the courage that he’s showing now by trying to give back to people who are on the road to recovery and sobriety. Nobody in the world would fault L.T. for choosing not to talk about these extremely personal, revealing details. But here he is, with a microphone, opening his heart and soul, and hopefully making a difference in someone else’s life -- a difference that could mean the difference between getting sober, or ending up in the hospital, jail or the morgue. We couldn’t be more grateful and honored to have L.T. speak to our clients.”

About A Forever Recovery
A Forever Recovery program is an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in. Not every treatment methodology works for every client. Some people are very receptive to 12-step principles, whereas others are more comfortable with faith-based treatment. Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
