In the "war on drugs," we hear the raw data and statistics about deaths and the like, and about the lack of options for those addicted and their loved ones. But there are also men and women who offer healing and hope -- who are an inspiration to all of us.
The medical director of RecoveryWorks addiction center in Merrillville, Dr. Brent Jacobus, came on "Regionally Speaking" on Tuesday to talk about the center, its work and of his efforts -- both at the center and in his private medical practice -- to help those dealing with addiction. The Lake County Council recently honored Dr. Jacobus, in recognition of International Overdose Awareness Day coming up August 31st. Dr. Jacobus first talks about himself and how he got involved with the center.
