Statewide: Voices of recovery and hope
This week on Statewide, we listen to a series from Side Effects Public Media on substance use and recovery.
Voices of Recovery and Hopeincludes people sharing their experiences. Their stories show that there is hope for people affected by substance use, there is help available and there are many people working to make change.
* WBEZ's Shannon Heffernan reports the Illinois Department of Corrections obtained Do Not Resuscitate orders from prisoners, even when they were not of sound mind. The finding came out last year, but the agency still hasn't changed policy.
* Actor Bob Odenkirk, from Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and his new series Lucky Hank, returned to his alma mater this week. Odenkirk was on the Southern Illinois University Carbondale campus to receive and honorary degree and he visited with reporter Jennifer Fuller.
