We need to empower our young people with new and better options, and remind them that the best defense against a life marred by addiction is combination of strong self-esteem, healthy relationships, and an unwavering sense of purpose.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, has launched a new video that features the center’s CEO Per Wickstrom interviewing former NFL player Myron Rolle on the challenges facing today’s young people.
“It’s harder for kids today than it was when I was young, because there are so many influences for them to deal with,” commented Myron Rolle in the interview, which took place at the 42nd Annual Rainbow PUSH Coalition in Chicago. “It’s up to role models in the community to show kids how to do the right things in the right way, because they’re the future. Soon, they’ll be making decisions and running things, and we have to instil the right values in them early, so that they can continue making our country, and our world, a better place.”
“I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve said this, but I’m going to keep saying it until our policy makers, legislators, community leaders, doctors, schools, parents, and everyone else gets the message and takes action: the only way to end the epidemic of addiction in this country is by focusing on children,” commented Per Wickstrom. “We need to put programs in place that prevent alcohol and drug addiction from taking root in the first place. We need to empower our young people with new and better options, and remind them that the best defense against a life marred by addiction is combination of strong self-esteem, healthy relationships with family and friends, and an unwavering sense of purpose.”
Added Per Wickstrom: “And if this sounds like a tall order or even a fantasy to some people, might I remind them that no matter how bleak things may seem, this is America. This country was founded on the principle that anything is possible, including the impossible. Beating the odds is in our national DNA. We’ve done it before. We can do it again!”

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.

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.
