The controversial topic of harm reduction and syringe services programs (SSPs) - needle exchange - is discussed with our guest, Jen Nagel, who may seem radical in her ideology but has a glaring passion for helping those suffering from addiction and treating her participants at her organization, The Porchlight Collective, with nothing but compassionate-filled attention and love. Parts of the discussion will leave some with the faintest of hearts to say, "WTF!", while those that are open-minded will at least listen to the methodology and goals of needle exchange programs. Jen also discusses her struggle with drug addiction, mental health, and how she finally made a decision to give recovery a serious try.
