Gov. Wolf lauds Berks center's fight against heroin, opioids

'They're doing some good work here,' Wolf says

TULPEHOCKEN TWP., Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf was in Berks County on Wednesday to tour a drug treatment center.

The governor visited Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge in Tulpehocken Township to congratulate the center on its new accreditation and its efforts to combat the heroin and opioid epidemic.

"It also gives me a chance to reinforce the interest and the focus we all need to have as Pennsylvanians on the opioid epidemic," Wolf said. "They're doing some good work here."

69 News also asked Wolf about the ongoing battle to fund the state budget. The governor said he is "managing" the situation and he is urging state lawmakers to pass a bill to tax production of Marcellus shale natural gas.
