TV program highlights local addiction treatment center


HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall’s (R-Schuylkill/Berks) new monthly television report highlights the tremendous work being accomplished at a local Berks County addiction treatment center to combat the heroin and opioid crisis.

The program includes a discussion with Senator Mario Scavello (R-Monroe/Northampton) and Teen Challenge Training Center Executive Director Kris McFadden, Sr. regarding the impact of the addiction crisis. The Teen Challenge Training Center offers detox, short-term and long-term programs to help patients who are suffering from addiction. Teen Challenge’s mission is to bring wholeness to the hopeless.

“We are hearing more and more about the difficulties of drug and alcohol abuse, and the impact on local families has been nothing short of devastating,” Argall said. “The program helps to explore the factors that are driving this crisis, and I think viewers will come away with a new perspective on the scope of the problem and the critical need for solutions.”
