Laurel group hopes to open rehab center

A new organization is on the move in Laurel and hopes to open a new drug rehab facility there.

The Zac Ainsworth Center of the "Dying to Live" organization marched down 5th Avenue Sunday. Dressed in shirts labeled Team Zac, the organization aimed to help those struggling with drugs and alcohol. It was started after the death of 19-year-old Zac Ainsworth who died in a car crash.

"Stop sweeping it under the rug.," said minister Brandilyne Irvin. "Drugs and alcohol affects almost every family. It doesn't matter what color you are; it doesn't matter what tax bracket you fall into - it effects you."

The organization hopes to raise enough money to break ground on a drug rehab facility.
