New Lufkin clinic offers possible solution to drug problems

Prescription drug addiction is apparently a big enough of an issue in East Texas for a new clinic to make a profit off of it. At 10, Alexis Spears speaks to workers at the Methadone Clinic of East Texas, which offers their own way to help addicts get off of prescription pills. Alexis will tell you why the director says this way works, and what substance abuse activists think about the method.

At 6, Francesca Washington looks into the issue of how Angelina College students cross the busy 59 highway to get lunch every day and what law enforcement thinks about it.

And at 5, find out why Nacogdoches businesses are targeting the senior citizen demographic.
