Kentucky woman helps others after battling 20-year addiction

By  | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - One Kentucky woman is making it a mission to help others overcome their addiction.

Our sister station WKYT reports, Debbie Graner battled with alcohol addiction for 20 years.

"In 2011, I tried to commit suicide. I started a fire in our rental house. I am a convicted felon because of that," said Graner.

Graner decided to turn her life around and go through Alcoholics Anonymous and become a member of First Corinthian Baptist Church in Frankfort.

The paster then asked her to organize an addiction recovery seminar.

Graner also says that not every program fits everyone.

Several organizations gathered on Saturday to provide information on recovery for all types of addiction.

"Our goal is instill that hope and give them the tools so that they're successful in their pursuits, whatever that may be," said Ivan Brown, counselor and therapist from the Isaiah House.
