Series Brings Voices of Those in Addiction Recovery To Light

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, we begin an occasional series we’re calling ​Recovery Stories –– conversations from the heart of the nation’s opioid crisis. Today, we meet Dayton, Ohio-native Andre Lewis and his friend and recovery sponsor, William Roberts. William works in social services in Dayton and is a church pastor with nearly three decades in recovery himself. As Andre explains in this story, he first met William at a treatment program for struggling addicts.

Recovery Stories is part of a special collaboration between West Virginia Public Broadcasting and Ohio public radio station WYSO. The series is produced by Jess Mador. For more, visit wyso.org.

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting which is solely responsible for its content. 

Support for our news bureaus comes from West Virginia University, Concord University, and Shepherd University.
