"Addicted Illinois: Covering the crisis" is a biweekly segment focused on tackling the opioid crisis in Illinois. I helped launched the series in May 2019. Since then, I have done countless stories with recovering addicts, first responders, law enforcement, recovery centers, public health officials and medical professionals. Through this special series, I try to not only bring attention to the issue but also help those who are struggling.
