Program on Illegal Drugs and Services To Help Set in Salem Thursday Night

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Want to know more about what illegal drugs are available in the community and treatment options that are available?  

The person heading the jail ministry program at the Marion County Jail for the Salem Ministerial Alliance has put together a program for Thursday night to provide the information.  Brenda Moore saw the need when having trouble obtaining the information herself.  "They'll learn about the drugs, they'll learn about a persons personal perspective on it, and most importantly there will be different resources there where an actual representative from each resource they can hear from.   Afterwards, there will be refreshments where they can stand around and talk to the person and get more information," said Moore.  

Moore says getting to the root of the drug problem will go a long way to addressing the crime problem in the area.  "When I first started doing this just over a year ago, it amazed me how many people actually in there either directly due to drugs or indirectly.  By indirectly I mean they were doing crimes to get the money for drugs," said Moore.  

The program will be held at 6:30 Thursday night at the Marion County Fair Exhibit building.  Everyone is invited to attend.
