Many parts of the United States are facing a drug epidemic and Christian County is facing its share of challenges. The Christian County Prevention Coalition wants to help the struggle, and is hosting a “Hope for Recovery” event on Saturday, September 23rd at 10 a.m. in the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Lori Younker is a volunteer for the CCPC, and co-chair of the “Hope for Recovery” event. She says the event serves two major purposes.
Younker says a wide majority of court cases in Christian County involve drugs and addiction, and there were 16 drug related deaths in the county. She says people that need help don’t realize how many options they have, and she hopes the event will educate those that are struggling with addiction.
