Dear Editor,

2016 has been the most spectacular, comprehensive year for volunteers, agencies, churches and businesses under the umbrella of Boyle ASAP Inc., Danville. There are way too many to list but I will try, and sorry if I miss your name.

State courts, law enforcement, community services such as KY.org; so many of the 100 surrounding churches are coming forward with HopeNetwork and Circle of Hope; 12-step faith-based organizations Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcartics Anonymous, AIAnon, Narconon; 12-step Christian-based groups Celebrate Recovery, Mercer-Boyle Recovery (Living Free), Reformers Unanimous. Special thanks to Barry Harmon, Brian Wooford and newly appointed Chaplain Grugle of Boyle County Detention Center utilizing group support for inmates. The former Red Cross building being converted to intensive out-patient support for inmates utilizing Shepherd’s House support group. The incarcerated diversion to treatment centers.

Addictive behavior does not take a rest, but in fact increases during the holidays such as stress, relationships, economic, social issues intensifies. Again, thank you and best wishes for all the holiday seasons.

H.M. “Rat” Durham
