Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2012
Burning Tree Programs announces partnership with comedian Mark Lundholm for 2013. The partnership consists of several visits to Burning Tree campuses throughout the year, along with sponsoring Lundholm as a keynote speaker at certain locations in 2013. Lundholm will provide a comedic approach to treatment for Burning Tree clients.
Mark Lundholm tends to take risks. Certainly not the same risks he once took as a self-proclaimed “ex hundred twenty-some pound methamphetamine, cocaine, wino, cardboard box living, shuffle-step, mumble-bum, horrible smelling, long hair, foul-mouth criminal, living under a bridge most of the 80’s and in abandoned buildings when no one bigger or badder would kick me out.”
Lundholm does over 300 speaking engagements a year, speaking to Fortune 500 companies, treatment centers, corporate seminars, comedy clubs, jails, etc. “These are broken boys and girls in adult bodies,” says Lundholm about Burning Tree clients. “I’m going to tell clients the same thing that I would tell myself when I came into recovery at age 28, and the things that I still tell myself to this day. If I have to keep it a secret, I am not going to do it. It’s not a bad thing having what you have. It’s a horribly dysfunctional thing to keep doing what have been doing. You want to be less depressed, help someone else. Freedom starts at forgiveness. Trust is never misplaced, it’s only misused. It’s not going to be my problem; I am going to get into the solution because I can do something about that.”
