EUGENE, Ore. — Experts say an estimated half a million Oregonians suffer from alcohol or drug addiction.

But one organization in Eugene is helping to fight the disease.

Serenity Lane is a nonprofit treatment and residential center that was founded in 1973. On Wednesday the organization will hold its second annual community awards breakfast. It’s a chance to recognize those in the area who are on the front lines of addiction treatment.

Jerry Gjesvold, Manager of Employer Services at Serenity Lane, was on KEZI 9 News Midday to talk about the nominees who will be honored this year at the breakfast.

The breakfast is Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 7:30-9 a.m. at the Eugene Hilton. Tickets are $10.
