Judge Paisley in Taylorville and State Attorney Mike Havera are aware of the drug addiction problem in Central Illinois.
Mayor Barry says thanks to Paisley and Havera the Taylorville Police Department is now a Safe Passage. Drug abusers can stop by the police department and drop off their illegal drugs and get the help they need without fear of being arrested.
Mayor Barry urges residents that if there is anyone you know that could use this help do not hesitate to stop by. 6 residents have been helped recently and all are in rehab trying to get back on track.
Barry appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
