Broome County Drug Prevention Group Travels To Washington DC

Boome County's drug epidemic is a very big concern and Fox 40 followed a group today en route to Washington DC for the "Unite To Face Addiction" rally.

Over 600 organizations from around the world came together today to take a stand against drug addiction and find ways to increase effective prevention, treatment, and recovery programs.

" When you're out here you see people that are all different demographics as far as age and nationality and i think that this is stopped being a disease that people think just happens to other people, " said Penny Strinfield.

The rally was organized by Facing Addiction Incorporated, a non-profit organization whose aim is to find a solution to the addiction crisis and to change how addiction is viewed by society.
