Letter: Addiction: A Local Solution

I just read John Owens’ article about substance abuse and the mom’s letter about a wonderful place in Florida (“It Doesn’t Have To Be An Unhappy Ending,” The Weekend, July 2-8). I am very happy for her son.

 

There is a faith-based program on Long Island. It is called Teen Challenge (though most of its residents are older.)

 

It has one of the highest success rates. The criteria are that the person wants to be there. The cost is very low.

 

I would love it if you might offer local people a lifeline out of such a devastating problem. This is their homepage:  www.freedomchapelny.org

Zhang was honored at the Cradle of Aviation Museum for her work and was presented with a $500 check and an iPad Mini. Many dignitaries were on hand, including State Education Department Regent Roger Tilles.

Motivate Teens To Read

 

Communities value their libraries, and at the Levittown Library, the library staff, in turn, truly appreciates their patrons. Employees at the Levittown Public Library, with a talent for knitting, demonstrate their commitment to the community’s teens by making “amigurumi”—small knitted or crocheted stuffed toys—for use in the reading program. 


Sports

 

Four Division Avenue High School seniors have signed national letters of intent to play baseball at local universities next fall. All four players were instrumental in winning the 2014 Nassau County Championship.
