We are proud to award this scholarship to Amber as recognition of her creativity, commitment to education, and focus on staying off of drugs.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
At a special ceremony on October 14 at Detroit’s Cody High School, open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program A Forever Recovery proudly awarded Amber Oliver with a scholarship in recognition of her award-winning entry for a new anti-drug campaign.
Ms. Oliver’s slogan “Health and Success Over Drugs and Stress” will be used on posters and other materials, and placed in schools to encourage Detroit-area kids to steer clear of drugs.
The $2,500 scholarship was presented by Herman Moore, a 4-time All Pro wide receiver who retired from the Detroit Lions after 11 seasons. In addition to winning the scholarship, Ms. Oliver was also invited to take part in a photo shoot that included former University of Michigan basketball star and Detroit native Jordan Morgan.
"Having grown up in Detroit, it is a goal of mine to impact the city's youth in a positive way," commented Morgan, who is currently playing overseas in the Italian League with Virtus Roma. "I'm glad to play a small part now in making a difference in the fight against drugs."
“I've always believed that if you have a healthy mind, you can do anything you want,” commented Ms. Oliver, a senior at Cody High School who plans on pursuing her undergraduate degree in psychology at Grand Valley State, Saginaw Valley or Henry Ford Community College. “Even if your body isn't healthy, as long as your mind is straightforward and you know what you want to do, you know how you feel and know how to deal with that feeling.”
"We have made it a mission to combat drug use among Detroit's youth," commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “As part of that mission, we were excited to reach out to the students themselves to see how they would advise their peers to stay away from drugs. We are proud to award this scholarship to Amber as recognition of her creativity, commitment to education, and focus on staying off of drugs."

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.
