Crowd of 90-plus hears details about local war on drugs

By Joseph Slacian

More than 90 people were on hand Thursday evening to hear representatives of the Wabash County Drug Steering Committee report on what they’ve been doing to combat the community’s drug problem.

The talk took place during Mayor Scott Long’s third “An Evening With the Mayor” town hall meeting at the Wabash County Historical Museum.

Long, Parkview Wabash President Marilyn Custer-Mitchell and Sarah Lochner, Director of Court Services, told those present much of what was said during a recent interview with The Paper of Wabash County.

Long told about two of his children who have run into problems with drugs. He also spoke about the need for transition homes to help recovering addicts work their way back into society clean and sober.
