Nathan Harmon, who is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, will host two sessions at Ohio University Eastern Gymnasium– 10 a.m. Monday and Tuesday.
A lot of his issues culminated from a situation where he had an accident, he was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, had one of his best friends in the passenger seat, best friend was killed. Nathan ended up in prison. So obviously he is out now and he is delivering these presentations to various groups. So we’re very excited to have him.Judge Albert Davies, Belmont County Juvenile Court

Harmon will also hold another presentation for adults only 6:30 p.m. Monday at the same location.
