Last week Together We Can was proud to be represented on KISS 1075's 'Junior A Puckcast with Graham Turnbull' by TWC Intake Services member Nathan MacMaster to discuss hockey, recovery, and our new partnership with the BCHL.
Nathan MacMaster was a Western Hockey League stand-out, and was one of the top ice-hockey players in Western Canada throughout his teenage years before his life was de-railed by addiction. Nathan is an alumni of Together We Can, and made a seamless transition from client to staff member within the organization just over a year ago.
In addition to his inspiring story of battling and overcoming addiction since the age of 14, Nathan was on the Junior A Puckcast to discuss the new partnership that was announced recently between Together We Can and the BCHL.
This partnership is one of the first of its kind in the recovery community, and places Together We Can at the forefront of a brand new opportunity to not only support men within the BCHL struggling with addiction, but for the community built around the league as well.
“Together We Can Addiction Recovery and Education Centre is very excited to partner with the BCHL to help bring awareness and support to men and families who may struggle with addictions,” said TWC Communications Manager Christopher Steffler.
“While many athletes may experience addiction in their lives, we also know that sports play an important role in the healing process. Participation brings people together to work towards a common goal and encourages physical fitness, both of which are integral to leading a healthy lifestyle and building a life in sobriety.”
