Hope Over Heroin Offers Help For Those Addicted

Hope Over Heroin will hold a community event in September designed to reach individuals addicted to drugs.
Pastor Jason Manns, from New Hope Fellowship Church, said it's important for the community to come together to give hope to those addicted, "There's such a stigma that goes along with it, and also a lot of misconceptions that go along with it, and I think that's the whole point of the Hope Over Heroin. I think within our community, I think they're tired. I think that they're frustrated, so I think when you even mention heroin in some settings, people kind of just write them off, they're already gone, there's no hope for them, and that's definitely what we're trying to being, and I think as churches, obviously we're spreading the hope of Christ and through salvation is that you're never without hope. There's always going to be an opportunity for you to turn it around."
For the complete discussion, tune in At Issue, tomorrow morning at 7:35 on WKTN.
