Addiction Recovery Facility for Lewis County

Drug addiction and abuse is so rampant in Lewis County every family is affected, said Vanceburg Mayor Todd Ruckel. Despite the obvious need, the county lacks the recovery support necessary to help those battling addiction get their lives back, said David White, a recovering addict.

What the group decided was that in Lewis County, addicts need a chance for a New Beginning.
