On February 21st, 2015, Choices Recovery had the opportunity to sponsor Debbie Durkin’s EcoLuxe Lounge and the “salute to the Oscars” celebration, honoring the 2015 Oscar Awards nominees. Held in the Stardust Penthouse on the rooftop of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the EcoLuxe Lounge saw a gathering of many of the world’s premier providers of socially conscious and ecologically friendly products and services. Durkin Entertainment, the leading producer of sustainable product placement in film and TV, organized the daylong event, where many of Hollywood’s notable contributors to the entertainment industry stopped in to enjoy the rustic American décor overlooking the stunning Los Angeles skyline and to learn more about the natural, holistic and eco-friendly goods and services showcased there.

“It was an honor to work alongside Debbie Durkin to sponsor the EcoLuxe Lounge and the ‘Salute to the Oscars’ celebration,” commented Choices Recovery founder Per Wickstrom. “We were grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness about this thing that we call ‘addiction’, and to have the chance to inform people about the services that Choices Recovery offers; holistic options in the treatment of addiction.”
