JACKSON, Tenn. — Second Chance Development Treatment Center held its third annual banquet to raise money to fund treatment programs. The center’s main goal is to bring men into sobriety from drugs and alcohol. It can treat up to eight people at one time, and the center charges the bare minimum so events such as the banquet help fund the nonprofit. Those who went through the program shared their stories at the banquet. The founder and president of Second Chance, Lamont Ingram, said the banquet is to help raise money for the foundation so they can better serve their clients. “Our main goal is to instill love, because most of the time guys or men and women or individuals, they don’t just turn to drugs,” Ingram said. “There’s something there deep within inside that causes them to turn to that.” Ingram said their program has a 93 percent success rate.
