Letters to the Editor 10/13/12

(Continued)

To the Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the "rally" to keep a substance abuse program out of a certain area in town.

I have been a social worker in town  17 years and have seen the need for a program such as this many times.  As far as I know, there is no such program in Navarro or Ellis County.

In looking over the petition, I see names  (of) people who see children removed from families due to substance abuse, people who work with disabled individuals and people who know first hand the extent of this problem....

Some have already requested their names be removed from the petition stating they were misled.  I would be willing to bet that this problem, substance abuse, has touched every person on that list in one way or another.  

The idea that people who need this help are "undesirable" is offensive and discriminatory. It is my hope that those of you who feel you were misled and signed this petition will contact the city and ask that your name be removed.  

It is also my hope that this program will become a reality and those who badly need this service will not be too ashamed to seek help.  I urge all of you who believe this type of program is needed, to let your voice be heard.

 Thank you,

 Debbie Richardson, LMSW
