Paula Adams - The Effects on the Family
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.

Paula Adams lost her oldest son, Dalton, to an overdose death. The lifelong Estill Countian joins our show to tell the story and how it impacted the whole family.

To be perfectly honest, this is an incredibly tough story to listen to, but it is endlessly important to hear. We are releasing this episode largely unedited - we did not want to do anything to interfere with Paula sharing this.

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