An Addict Tells His Story
Stories about drug addiction tend to have some common themes.
One of them is that people often think that they will NOT get addicted. And they're usually wrong.
Kyle Simpson was a happy college student, by his own description. But he got addicted to drugs and had to fight his way back to the life he'd known.
He made a documentary about his experience, called simply "Junk." It screens on Tuesday (April 11) at Southern Oregon University. Kyle joins us, along with Jackson County Health Director Dr. Jim Shames and SOU faculty member Lee Ayers.
