Frankfort church hosts addiction and recovery seminar
Debbie Graner is on a mission to help others after overcoming her 20-year battle with alcohol addiction.
"In 2011, I tried to commit suicide. I started a fire in our rental house. I am a convicted felon because of that," said Graner.
She decided to turn her life around, went through Alcoholics Anonymous, and became a member of First Corinthian Baptist Church in Frankfort.
The pastor asked if she would organize an addiction recovery seminar. She quickly agreed.
"We want to let people know that there are options," she said.
On Saturday, several organizations targeting alcoholism, opioid addiction, gambling, and other addictions, set up booths in the fellowship hall to provide information about their services.
