Eating Chocolate To Fight Drug Addiction

By Faith Jessie.
Do you like chocolate? Well, apparently some people loved it so much, they decided to throw a chocolate festival to raise money for addition treatment.

Multiple chocolatiers, restaurants, caterers and chocolate lovers came out to the 4th annual Everything Chocolate Festival today.

All of the chocolate goodness benefited the Addiction Center of Broome County.

Guests paid $10 to get into event where they could indulge in a variety of chocolates and other yummy treats.

"Being a huge chocolate lover, I look forward to this every year. So, I'm happy to do it and the vendors that participate, it's really nice to work with them and they are in support of our services so it's fun," said Carmela Eirch, Executive Director at The Addiciton Center of Broome County.

The Addiction Center of Broome County focuses on alcoholism and substance abuse.

They have many programs that help people with addiction, to fight it and create a fresh start in life

Proceeds from the chocolate festival, will allow the organization to expand and offer more services.
