This week on the Upper Cape Catch, host and producer Gilda Geist takes a look into addiction, substance use, and recovery on the Upper Cape. In this episode, you’ll hear three stories: one about the Falmouth Commission on Substance Use’s newest member, Richard Corey Jr.; one about a young man who was killed in Falmouth after battling addiction for much of his life; and one about a local effort led by Doris Kraemer to get emergency opioid overdose kits, or Naloxboxes, into buildings around the Upper Cape.

In this episode, you heard an abridged version of “In The Wake Of A Tragedy” by Noelle Annonen. Click here to read the full version.
