Challenging program: Rich Blevins presented a program outlining the objectives of “Teen Challenge” during a recent meeting of Austintown Rotary Club. The speaker explained that the residential faith-based recovery support program for men has about a 60 percent success rate for addictions and that heroin is apparently the drug of choice in the Valley. Funded entirely by community donations, the 12-month program requires discipline, responsible decision-making and accountability. For information about admission into Ohio Valley Teen Challenge call 330-743-9030. Congratulating Blevins following his informative talk was Susan Leetch, president of Austintown Rotary.
