Our perception of athletes, especially the ‘super-stars’ mentioned below, is that they are strong, healthy, and have every reason to live…. so why and how do they end up with addiction and drug related incidents affecting their incredibly talented and gifted careers?  Because they are human, just like the rest of us. We are all vulnerable and susceptible to making wrong choices, especially ones presented as a ‘possibility’ for achieving greatness or happiness.  In the vulnerable state of being human . . . it’s all about making the right choices.  Our sincerest empathy and concern go out to the individual athletes who needed help making Right Choices for their lives and for the families and professionals affected by the lives of these super-star athletes who have made their choices that will forever change the History of sports.

  • Figure skater Christopher Bowman dead –  LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11 (UPI) — Christopher Bowman, a two-time U.S. figure skating champion, has been found dead in a Los Angeles motel. He was 40.

NOW, is the perfect time to involve a Certified Personal Recovery Assistant in the life of any ‘at-risk’ athlete.  Simply providing an opportunity for athletes to lean on an experienced PRA as a means for supporting healthy living and reduced temptation to addictive substances by making Right Choices within their life and environment…. could prevent similar outcomes in the future.  Creating a positive affect on the History of Sports forever!
