Ike Edwards, the President and founder of LastRehab, has joined the league of supporters for the Oklahoma Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD). With a recent contribution to MADD, Ike stated, "This is an expression of my commitment to help people suffering from addiction in Tulsa."
He went on to say that he frequently deals with the issue of drunk driving and underage drinking in his drug and alcohol rehabilitation center referral service. "I have seen the profound effect this problem has on families. The devastation caused by drunk driving and underage drinking lasts a life time and it is heartbreaking. MADD is the largest nonprofit organization working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. I greatly admire this organization that has saved 300,000 lives in its fight against drunk driving. I acknowledge and applaud the work being done by MADD to save lives. The values of LastRehab are in total alignment with this great organizations."
In 2011 alone, MADD served 60,000 victims and survivors of drunk and drugged driving. They have established the goal to serve 65,000 families in 2012.
Ike founded LastRehab in 2008. LastRehab offers a unique service to families and addicts. As a former addict, Ike is well aware of the daunting process of finding the right treatment center in a sea of 25,000 facilities and programs in the U.S. Counselors at LastRehab strive to match clients to the best treatment facilities and programs to suit their needs. This serves to save thousands of dollars and curtail the "revolving door" syndrome. While LastRehab will place those in need in different programs; its referral emphasis is largely on alternative holistic rehabilitation options that address the issues of the mind, body and spirit related to the underlying causes of substance or alcohol abuse. Many holistic programs have success rates that are 8-10 times higher than traditional based programs.
Ike Edwards' pledge is to support MADD in its fight against drunk driving and underage drinking and to help people suffering from addiction achieve a drug-free, happy and productive life.
