This week we’ll be discussing a heavy topic: substance use disorders and addiction. One of the many startling impacts of the pandemic is the rising number of drug-related incidents happening in the communities around us.
Our guest for this week’s episode is Patty Sykstus, President and Co-Founder of Not One More Alabama, an organization she started to help people affected by addiction. Patty brings an important perspective, as well as the experience necessary to talk about things like early warning signs and how to help someone get through some of the darkest moments of their lives.
