HINTON - A Summers County theatre donated their space to host a drug addiction solution program.

 

A free event promoting drug prevention urges people to not let drugs control their life. 'A Step Forward,' organized by the Hinton Hope Foundation, invited a guest speaker, Tiffany Eis, to speak about her personal experience down the dangerous road of addiction. Eis will speak about overcoming her destructive addiction that almost cost her her life. Eis suffered injuries from drug addiction that she will live with for the rest of her life. Manager of the Ritz Theater in Hinton, Sheila Allmon, said she hopes this draws a large crowd.

 

“Every community has its own drug problem and of course, we are not immune to is so if we can help our people in our town get over their drug addictions, then maybe that will ripple,” said Allmon.

 

This free event will be held April 8th and 9th from 6-8 PM. and organizers invite the community to attend.
