Redemption House - Edna and Jeremy Thompson
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 by having honest, in-depth interviews.
Everyone is influenced by their environment. People tend to reflect what is around them. For people in recovery, you hope your environment is one that will build you up, support you, and help you keep your momentum. One place to find this environment is in a sober living house.
This week, we are taking a look at sober living houses. We've been joined by our friends Edna and Jeremy Thompson (listen to their stories here), who have just opened Redemption House, their own sober living house. We look at why these houses are necessary, what their operation will be like, and why we need lots of these all over the place.
These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
