Editorial: ALPHA Center
Placeholder Image
The ALPHA Behavioral Health Center has been doing a lot of good in Kershaw, Lee and Chesterfield counties for many years, serving at the forefront of the war against alcohol, drug and tobacco addiction. The ALPHA Center received a much needed boost yesterday -- to the tune of $1 million -- thanks to efforts by Sen. Vincent Sheheen and Rep. Laurie Funderburk. With $4 million in state funds earmarked for combatting the opioid crisis, they were able to persuade their colleagues in the S.C. legislature that the ALPHA Center was an appropriate and vital provider of such services.
