Pittsburgh, PA, April 17, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Valerie McElvy, host of Serving U Beaver County on WBVP 1230 AM radio, will interview Frank Say of U Recover. Frank Say is an addiction interventionist and has over a decade of experience in the area of substance abuse in the Pittsburgh metro area. Valerie and Frank will be exploring the topic of addiction and its impact on the Pittsburgh region by highlighting the dynamics of the current problem, possible real life answers and new methods those in the clinical helping professions are using to combat this issue.
The wave of addiction that has swept the county has had a particular impact on the Pittsburgh region, specifically Beaver County. Heroin, prescription pain medications and similar substances of abuse has escalated the amount of illegal activity, arrests, overdoses and deaths due to addiction. The most surprising aspect is the demographic of the individuals who are wrapped up in the grips of addiction: adolescents and young adults ranging from 17 - 27 years of age. This episode of Serving U Beaver County is one in a series that Valerie McElvy has produced over the past few months on the subject of drug abuse in the Pittsburgh and Beaver County areas. The goal of the show is to shed some light on this tragic epidemic that has effected the community and share hope for a solution.
This episode of Serving U Beaver County will air on Sunday, April 23rd at 10 am.
