State Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) was today given the “You Made a Difference Award” from the Ohio Alliance of Recovery Providers. The award is given annually to legislators and other government officials who have made an exceptional difference.

The award, presented by Tom Stuber, recognizes Senator Manning’s contributions to efforts that increase awareness, treatment, and rehabilitation for addictions.

“As a former teacher, I have seen how habits and addiction can destroy lives and tear apart families,” said Manning. “We have more work that must be done to bring people out of these dangerous lifestyles. We also need to work harder to help our children understand the dangers of abusing prescription medications, in addition to the work that we do for illegal drugs and alcohol.”

Specifically, the group thanked Senator Manning for we work on legislation to allow emergency services personnel to carry the Narcan, a drug proven to save lives during a drug overdose.
