Community Dialogues: Battling Drug Addiction
Community Dialogues is a program for frank discussions about race, racism and racial justice.
Our guest is Roy Kearse, a person in long-term recovery and Vice President of Recovery Services and Community Partnerships for Samaritan Daytop Village. The organization works to alleviate some of the adverse conditions that people in New York are dealing with. He talked with us about Samaritan Daytop Village’s PARC programs in Queens and the Bronx, and how they help to battle drug addiction and overdoses.
