Point Pleasant – Gay people are everywhere, even in Point Pleasant.

This week, the Mason County Anti-Drug Coalition went through training on how to be understanding of gay people with substance abuse issues. Tim White, regional prevention coordinator with Prestera Center, gave the presentation and stressed, repeatedly, the presentation was not about approving of homosexuality but understanding people who happen to be gay who also have substance abuse problems.
