Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
On March 19, 2015, locally and nationally recognized pastors, ministers and bishops, civic leaders and law enforcement officials gathered in the Hall of Legends at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, for an informal luncheon and educational presentation called “Fighting Addiction Together”. Hosted by LiveToBeSober.org and led by former Lions wide receiver and motivational speaker Herman Moore, the “Fighting Addiction Together” event focused on informing those present about different options in substance abuse treatment in the new landscape of healthcare insurance coverage that has surfaced since the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Several guest speakers were invited to this luncheon, including a gentleman from Houston, TX, named Ronald Stevens. Mr. Stevens, with the help of a substance abuse rehabilitation center, overcame his addiction issues to lead a healthy and positive lifestyle today. He was more than happy to come to the “Fighting Addiction Together” event to share a little about his journey from addiction to recovery with the audience. A video of his speech was recently released on LiveToBeSober.org’s YouTube channel.

“Mr. Stevens’ victory over his addiction is an inspiration to all of us,” commented Live to be Sober sponsor Per Wickstrom. “It goes to show that, no matter how bad things may seem, no matter how dark the days have become, it is never too late to turn back and find a brighter path. Nobody is ever too far gone. There is hope for all of us.”
Other guest speakers at the “Fighting Addiction Together” luncheon included Bishop William Murphy and Detroit Police Assistant Chief of Police Steve Dolunt. Guests also received gift bags with educational brochures, DVDs, Parent-Child promissory notes regarding abstinence from substance abuse, home drug tests and other tools that are helpful in giving guidance to those who may be struggling with addiction. A raffle for executive suite seats for a Detroit Lions home game was also held.
