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.
This week, our guest has seen addiction in her personal and professional life. She currently works in Shepherd's Shelter/Ross Rehab as the in-house nurse practitioner. She is also a mother to three children who have all struggled with addiction.
Brenda Drennen is truly someone who knows addiction. She knows the weight it has on people effected by it, she knows the health implications, and she knows how necessary it is to receive quality care.
These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
