The column that says even Alex Calabrese liked our show on 92.1 FM today even though it was hectic with Michael DeLeon, of SNJ Today calling in from the Cincinnati airport going from one speaking engagement to another majoring in prevention and naming who is clueless in the fight against addiction all over the country and Joy Taylor and Jennifer Toy in the studio telling their own stories and how the treatment centers have no open beds, and then we suddenly thought, why doesn’t Cumberland County have its own treatment centers instead of having to count on places up the road, and then DeLeon’s wife messaged to say one with 20 beds is opening here in November, so it’s a start.
