The Local Lens
Nar-Anon Support Group - Part 1
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.

This week, we are joined on the show by three members of a Nar-Anon support group in Richmond, KY who are all from Irvine: Marti Hackworth, Rebecca Wolfinbarger and Laura Helvey. Paula Adams, a guest on a previous episode, is also a member of this group, though she could not attend the interview. You can listen to her episode here.

This is, in fact, part one of a two-part episode with these ladies. We spend part one getting a background on each of the women and learning about the importance of support. Each of them had a child who suffered from SUD, but they teach us that even they had a need for recovery as mothers.

One of the main takeaways is that plenty of people are hurt by just one addiction, and it is a lot easier to get by with the help of some loving friends around you. These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
