'I think the state of addiction is not only the drugs,' Joan offered. 'I think it’s the state of what we’re going through. Parents have to work two jobs, kids don't have the supervision, nor the schools that are giving them the proper education.'
Hollywood, California (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
On April 8th, 2015, Choices Recovery, South Bend had the honor of sponsoring Durkin Entertainment’s “RockNRolla Movie Awards” EcoLuxe Lounge at the famous Avalon Hollywood. Organized by Debbie Durkin, Los Angeles’ leading producer of sustainable product placement in TV and film, this daylong event saw many contributors to the Hollywood entertainment industry in attendance to learn more about the natural, holistic and eco-friendly goods and services featured that day.
Hosting the Choices Recovery Celebrity Interview Lounge was Chase Masterson, star of roles in General Hospital, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, ER and many others. Throughout the event, Chase had the opportunity to speak with many of the Hollywood regulars that dropped in to the EcoLuxe Lounge, discussing their views and perspectives on the problem of addiction that our society faces today and the potential solutions to that problem.
One of the guests that took a few moments to sit and chat with Chase was Joan Mangum, columnist for the Beverly Hills Courier. “I think the state of addiction is not only the drugs,” Joan offered. “I think it’s the state of what we’re going through. Parents have to work two jobs, kids don’t have the supervision, nor do they have the schools that are giving them the proper education and outdoor activities to promote or stimulate them of what they could be. And a lot of these kids feel very hopeless about it.” A video of Joan’s interview has been released on Choices Recovery’s YouTube Channel.
The EcoLuxe Lounge is a premier red carpet event that makes appearances at various awards ceremonies and festival throughout the year, gathering many of the world’s top providers of socially conscious and ecologically sound products and services. As a provider of holistic treatment for substance abuse and addiction, Choices Recovery, South Bend, was a unique addition to the other service providers that were showcased at the EcoLuxe Lounge.
“It was an uplifting experience to work alongside so many people and companies who care so much about what we put into our bodies and how we treat our planet,” commented Choices Recovery founder Per Wickstrom. “We are grateful for the opportunity to help raise awareness about the problem of dependency that our society faces today, and for the chance to inform people about the service that we offer, which is giving our patients the ability to make Choices in their recovery from addiction.”
Other notable attendees at the EcoLuxe Lounge included: Scheana Marie Shay, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, James Kennedy, Tom Schwartz and Peter Madrigal (Vanderpump Rules); Jessica Hall (Kendra On Top); Octavius Johnson (Ray Donovan); Sabina Gadecki (Entourage The Movie); Scott Bailey (The Bay); Dexter Darden (The Maze Runner); Lexi Ainsworth (Emmy Nominee General Hospital); Ken Davitian (Borat); Monty Greer (MTV’s Awkward); Barbara Alyn Woods (One Tree Hill) with daughters Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs), Alyvia Alyn Lind (The Young & The Restless) and Emily Alyn Lind (Revenge).
