YWCA of the Greater Capital Region Logo

On this week’s 51%, we recognize International Overdose Awareness Day, and hear from women who have battled drug addiction and walked the complicated road to recovery. We also learn about some of the resources available to those suffering from substance abuse, and attend a support group session for formerly incarcerated women in western Massachusetts.


Guests: Laura Combs, executive director of New Choices Recovery Center; Amethyst
