Victor Twiggs says the addicts come for the pizza. The director of GYST - "Get Your Stuff Together" - Twiggs is building a support system for troubled young men, often with substance abuse issues, on Tuesday nights in Morrisville.

"I just see a light come on in their eyes when they see that someone's really listening to what they have to say," Twiggs told a full Statehouse chamber Monday.

Twiggs was one of nearly 200 participants in a community forum who came together to address problems associated with opiate addiction and trafficking on Monday.
