Special Series: Part 5 Of 'My Heart Still Beats'

The opioid epidemic has hit emergency rooms hard all over the country. As ERs have seen more patients with serious problems related to opioid use, they’ve struggled to find ways to help. But many hospitals and centers are trying a new form of support: trained "recovery coaches" who work alongside medical staff. Part five of My Heart Still Beats — a special series from Writers for Recovery and VPR, which Vermont Edition is airing this week — is about recovery coaching.

More from this episode, and the series, here.

My Heart Still Beats has support from the VPR Innovation Fund, and SB Signs.
