The Color of Addiction: Stories of Race, Response, and Recovery

Oct 3, 2016

This hour, as part of WNPR’s week-long reporting series on the opioid epidemic, we explore racial disparities within the context of America’s crack cocaine and opioid crises

We talk to former drug users who are now in recovery. And we find out what the State of Connecticut is doing to help residents combat addiction.

Has substance abuse affected you or someone you know? Where did you turn for help?
