The Local Lens is a public health podcast going inside one community's experience with the drug epidemic. Everyone in the town of Stanton, KY sees this drug issue differently from each other, either because of their personal lives or professional roles. This show aims to showcase those different perspectives through having honest, in-depth interviews with a new guest each episode.
For the second time, we are joined by Ms. Lisa Coffey and Ms. April Smith (listen to Part 1 here). This episode is the second half of our original conversation, when we turn to discussing how to support people in recovery and addiction.
So much of being in recovery is impulse control, and having a support system around you is essential to success. This episode helps us understand how we can all be helpful, and truly be a friend of recovery.
The conversation is heavy, but enlightening still. Listen to see what the intra-family relationships are like for this family. These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
