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.
Putting people in jail cannot be all we do to combat drug abuse. We've trying that for decades -- it doesn't work. We also can’t be afraid to change our approaches once we see we are failing.
We are hearing from a couple this week who have learned, through trial and error, a better way to reach people. Here's a spoiler: it's all about caring.
The founders of Shepherd’s Shelter/Ross Rehab, Pastor Wayne and Momma Jeanette Ross, join the show to tell us about their program. After two decades, they have seen changes to the addiction landscape, as well as how they provide treatment.
These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
