Show Notes

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.

Tabitha and Tony Barrett are a bridge between two long-separated communities in Mount Sterling, KY: the government and the people who use drugs. As two people in recovery themselves, they are leading an organization dedicated to pulling other people out of addiction and putting them back in society.

The results of this have been notable. People are gaining back their responsibilities, returning to their families, and adding to the overall goodness of Montgomery County because of the work of RMC.

In this episode, we're talking about what they do and why it's important. We also get a look at what the role of your every-day citizen is in this fight. Having a community that is recovery-ready is a responsibility shared by all of us. We are all involved, so we better start acting like it.

These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
