Salford Radio show host and former martial arts champion, Peter Dwan, today announced his commitment to fighting outside the ring. This time his opponent is drug addiction and his quest is to help addicts beat it once and for all.
One time British Thai Boxing champion, Peter has his own show on Salford City Radio , the ‘Healthy Living Show,’ runs Thai Boxing Sessions and is well known for his tireless community work with Manchester’s youth. He has now set out to extend his work in the community to helping addicts beat their addiction using the Narconon® First Step Programme, a self-help method of withdrawal that enables addicts to withdraw from drugs at home.
Once an addict himself, Peter conquered his addiction and from there took up Thai boxing, a sport that saw him a few years later emerge as the British champion. He therefore knows intimately both the agony that an addict and his family has to endure but also that addiction can be beaten and that an addict can go on to lead a happy and successful life.
He has worked for many years now in the field of drug education, a selfless devotion that has enabled him to reach thousands of school kids with the unique Narconon drug education presentations know as ‘The Truth About Drugs.’
Of his drug education work, he said: ‘It is probably the most rewarding thing I have done. When you do the Narconon ‘Truth about Drugs’ lectures, you are very aware that you are saving lives by giving kids factual information that enables them to make their own well-informed decision to skip the whole dugs thing completely.
But there is another aspect to fighting the good fight against drugs and that is helping those who have not been so lucky and have found themselves caught in the seemingly inescapable trap of addiction.
Peter said:’I am here with a simple message: something can be done about drugs. My goal now is to help others learn the very simple and effective Narconon method of withdrawal known as the First Step programme.’
The First Step programme was developed by Narconon so as to bring the method of withdrawal that has been used for almost half a century in their rehab centres to people at grass roots level. It is about people learning how to do it themselves and, armed with the knowhow, family member helping family member and friend helping friend.
But in his commitment to knocking out drug addiction once and for all, Peter goes one step further;
‘I will provide free seminars and free help and advice to anyone who wants to learn the Narconon method of drug-free withdrawal. It is simply the best method of drug and alcohol withdrawal I have found. In my opinion it is highly workable and not difficult to learn. And it places a means to help themselves within the reach of everyone, regardless of their financial resources. And if we are ever to get drugs out of our community then such a method has to be readily available and broadly known.
