Jim’s Topic on Teen Drug Abuse and Information for Concerned Parents [Audio]
Yesterday, Jim discussed the woman who wrote Eric Scott a letter that Eric subsequently read and handed over to Governor Christie during Ask the Governor. The letter was a plea to help her son who has a major drug problem. On today's show, Jim conducted a few interviews with Michael, the husband of the woman that wrote the letter, as well as interviews with John Hulick and Frank Greenagel from the Governor's office.
We complied all the interviews as well as some helpful resources for parents like Michael and his wife that are looking for assistance for their kids who are battling substance abuse.
