Sober College's drug rehab and educational approach received
endorsements from Generation X & Y Leaders and CEO's of Southern
California businesses as the first ever College entirely committed
to serving the needs of young adults in search of a sober college
environment. Extreme Sports events and tours will promote the
innovative new drug rehab and education center to the Generation
X & Y crowds. CEO's committed to considering Sober College
graduates for work.
"159,000 of today's first-year college students will drop
out of school next year for alcohol or other drug- related reasons",
according to the Core Institute, a leading research assessment
and development organization serving alcohol and drug treatment
programs across the nation. "The average student spends about
$900 on alcohol each year, opposed to $450 on his or her books."
Coming on board to endorse Sober College's unique drug treatment
approach are Mark Billik, CEO and Founder of BeCore Promotions,
Rick Stark, President of Stark Events & Associates, David
Weaver, CEO of DAW Design and Construction, and Robert Tamkin,

"We believe Sober College is such a captivating blend of
drug rehab and education based treatment for young adults. We

opportunities within our various organizations", stated the
group. "Their mission is important to our audience and the
main reason we have agreed to promote their work at our events."
