Dozens gather to pray against substance abuse


WHITESBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Dozens of people came together in Letcher County for the Action Against Substance Abuse march and Rally.

Several churches organized the event along with Operation UNITE.

The rally featured many guests from judges to pharmacists, who prayed for the battle against drugs.

They say they believe that the only solution to the region's drug problem is God.

“We believe that God is the answer, and that Jesus is the way. We've got to do something through a unified effort in our community, said worship leader,” Frank Holbrook.

Resources for help or recovery were available at the rally for anyone in need.
