Hosts revist harm reduction, and why it is important. Why syringe services are controversial, and how they are actually saving more lives than we realize.
Chemical World hosts are asking the community to submit a recording of themselves reciting a piece that they wrote about their struggle with addiction, whether it is their own struggle or someone they are close to. These pieces can be any type of writing that someone wants to share. If you are not comfortable reading it yourself you can send it to us and we will read it on air for you. You can record these submissions on your smart phone with the "Voice Memo" or "Voice Recorder" applications. Submit pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will share submissions in our September episode.
KDNK Membership Director Kenna Crampton and Exectutive Director of High Rockies Harm Reduction Maggie Seldeen debut their new Public Affairs show Chemical World. This program aims to de-stigmatize drug addiction and mental health, discuss different recovery models and harm reduction programs and explore evidence based practices in treating addiction. Topics will include the history of drug laws, connections between poverty and drug addiction as well as personal recovery stories.
