Best Drug Rehabilitation encourages healthy living at the second annual Care Fair

Healthy LivingOn Saturday, January 10, staff from Best Drug Rehabilitation, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in Manistee, Mich., joined together with city employees and students from local schools to take part in the second annual “Care Fair.”

The event, which was free of cost to attend, took place at the Manistee United Methodist Church and offered a range of information and contact with providers of healthy living practices, from nutrition to fitness.

Topics included organic gardening, dance classes, dietary classes, and more, as well as free healthy soup and door prizes.

Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers a wide variety of holistic treatments for it’s patients, felt this event was a great opportunity to encourage and educate people on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

BDR’s CEO Per Wickstrom enjoyed the chance for his staff to be a part of such an important event in their community.

“Care Fair is a great way for people of all ages across the area to learn more about the dos and don’ts of healthy living,” said Wickstrom. “And at the same time, it’s a wonderful opportunity for our team to support the community and give back.

“Given that many New Year’s Resolutions include some aspect of healthier living – whether it’s to lose weight, eat healthier, exercise, reduce stress and the list goes on, Care Fair’s timing couldn’t be better!”

    What an incredible event. I always appreciate events like this and involving the community to teach people of all ages how to live a healthy life. I think that in schools and the education system you do not have enough information on how to handle life on a daily basis. Things like how to live a healthy lifestyle or anything to do with handling the basics in life. I think that there is more information but not enough available data on a wider plane. I love when you see dedicated people that are making sure people know how to live a healthy life. A healthy life style makes a really big difference in the life length and quality.
