To the Editor,

When I read in the News-Graphic that a contract was signed with Shepherd’s House to deal with addictions, I was thrilled. My husband worked in the Shepherd’s House from 2001 - 2006. 

Shepherd’s House in Lexington is an in-house program with several steps required before completion.

It is not a 30 day program.  

Nothing works better for an addict than an excellent program and willingness to change. Needle  exchange apparently hasn’t helped with over-doses. I would be more than happy to relay to any addict the effects this negative behavior has on others in society.  

I wish Shepherd’s House well. If the program is anything like the one in Lexington, we’ll be blessed to have them; as will any addict who wants to change.
