Last week, an article by Bobbie Curd appeared on the front page of The Advocate-Messenger that posed a question: "Does Danville need a drug rehab center?" The question arose when a resident of Danville, whose husband suffered from a serious drug addiction, became concerned about the lack of such a facility here. A Morehead treatment center supplied their needs, but the distance was a drawback to family and friends.
The husband was destined to be incarcerated with little or no professional help available. A close friend of the addict died of a drug overdose, arousing concern of his own condition of not being able to stop drugging. He and his family sought medical advice. The article says he is doing well in Morehead.
Our city is growing by leaps and bounds in all directions - a hospital addition, a new parking garage, a new clinic, a new library annex, a new hospice facility, a new building on Centre College campus and new church buildings. In these new community facilities, we can take delight and be proud. It is my belief that we have the best group of professionals to serve our community.
