New Per Wickstrom Blog Post Tackles Addiction Myths
Date:12/24/2013

(PRWEB) December 24, 2013

People who think that addiction could never happen to them or a member of their family because of their age, where they live, or how much money they make, should immediately stop what they’re doing and read the latest blog post from Per Wickstrom.

The blog post, entitled “If You Think Addiction Could Never Happen to You, Think Again” tackles two myths about addiction that continue to persist, despite overwhelming statistical evidence to the contrary.

The first myth that the blog post busts is that addiction is typically only something that younger people experience, as they struggle with peer pressure and other intense, sometimes overwhelming issues associated with adolescence. However, the fact is that people of all ages suffer from addiction, from children to seniors.

The second myth that the blog post busts is that income and/or location determine whether someone will – or will not – become an addict. Addicts are found in virtually every neighborhood, and across the entire income spectrum; especially now that painkiller addiction is on the rise.

“The best treatment for addiction is prevention,” commented Per Wickstrom, A Forever Recovery’s CEO. “And that’s why busting these addiction myths is so important. We need to educate people of all ages so that they can make smart choices that are best for them and their future – and that’s the one that leads away from addiction, not towards it.”

The complete version of Per Wickstrom’s new myth-busting blog is available on his website at: http://www.perwickstrom.com/addiction/if-you-think-addiction-could-never-happen-to-you/.
