Other parts of the country seem to get more attention, but Oregon ranks high in its drug addiction rate, and low in its access to treatment. 

The state Alcohol & Drug Policy Commission is working on a long-term strategic plan for dealing with addiction.  And it is getting input and guidance from the coalition known as Oregon Recovers.  Mike Marshall of Oregon Recovers visits with details of the scope of the problem, and the status of efforts to address it.  We also hear from reps from Medford-based Addictions Recovery Center.
