An Eastern Kentucky community started tackling its drug problem several years ago and the effort is larger than ever today.

This weekend, community members and people from around the country gathered in Manchester to remember the city's historic March Against Drugs in 2004.

CCDC Pastor and recovering addict, Steven Collett says the community is fighting drugs, not the people trapped in addiction.

"That's what made a drastic change in my life. When I seen people that did care because actually I never saw that before until I come to Clay County," said Collett.

Today was the first service held in the new Community Church in Manchester, one of many churches that participated in the march.
