Warren- The Brighton Center for Recovery is the beneficiary of $25,000 in additional funds for the Children’s Addiction Prevention Program, thanks to a donation by Blair Bowman, owner of The Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
The program is a free educational, therapeutic and addiction prevention program for children ages 7 to 12 who are affected by a loved one’s alcohol or drug problem.
“This generous support from The Suburban Collection Showplace, combined with a recent gift of $50,000 from the DeRoy Testamentary Foundation, will enable us to significantly expand this program at Brighton,” said Raymond Waller, director of the Brighton Center for Recovery.
Brighton Center for Recovery, formerly known as Brighton Hospital, is one of America’s oldest and most experienced substance abuse treatment facilities and is a member of the St. John Providence Health System.
“We are pleased to support this unique program designed for children who’ve been directly affected by the addiction challenges faced by a parent, sibling, grandparent or other family member,” said Blair Bowman, owner, The Suburban Collection Showplace. Bowman is also vice chair and treasurer for the Board of Providence and Providence Park Hospitals (St. John Providence Health System West Region Board) and a longtime supporter of St. John Providence Health System.
Brighton Center for Recovery believes that addiction and prevention education between the ages of 7 and 12 can have a dramatically positive impact on young people’s futures.
