    BOSTON (CBS) – Talking about pain in your life can be a powerful healer and it’s the idea behind a community-based program addressing mental health and trauma. “Can We Talk” is also helping those battling addiction. “It was crippling,” said Prentice Crowell, talking about his own addiction. He’s been recovering for eight years and now sees how Boston has struggled to clean up the drug hotspot known as Mass and Cass. The tents are mostly gone, but the problems are still very much here. “An addict is always fighting his addiction. You know for me I deal with my addition 24-7. Every day I have to deal with the fact that part of me still wants to use,” he told WBZ-TV. What has been a lifesaver for him, he says, is simply talking. “It’s important that we share our pain,” he said. He does that through “Can We Talk,” a program with others who’ve experienced trauma. It was started by a member of our WBZ-TV family, Rev. Liz Walker. Read: ‘Can We Talk’ Helps Trauma Survivors Share Stories Of Pain,...

Senators and attorneys general call her in hopes of better understanding how they can support their communities as they deal with an epidemic of overdoses. It's incredibly gratifying work, but when I recently visited Peterson in Taunton, Massachusetts, she told me she would forgo all the recognition for not having had to go through the pain addiction left on her family.

Christine Lewis and Jaime Beckman are candid about their pasts.

    Donald Trump’s attacks on Hunter Biden for his past drug addiction could deepen the stigma for those struggling with similar issues, experts have warned. The president and close allies have taken aim at the adult son of the Democratic candidate, including a false claim from Trump at the first presidential debate that Biden was thrown out of the military for cocaine use. As NPR noted, the 50-year-old was given an administrative discharge from the U.S. Navy Reserve in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine, not given a dishonorable discharge as Trump had claimed. The report added that Biden has spoken openly about his past struggles with illegal drugs, and the former vice president acknowledged his son’s difficulties when Trump raised the issue at the debate, saying he was proud of Hunter for working on his issues and fixing it. Other Republican allies have joined in launching attacks on Hunter Biden, which has intensified in the wake of a controversial New York Post story claiming that a laptop computer connected to Biden contained an email in which he improperly used his...

Amatus Recovery Centers’ Social Justice Scholarship is offering $750,000 to African Americans to cover the costs of care, ranging from detox to outpatient treatment. Leaders with the organization said the goal is to offer an opportunity for those who otherwise wouldn’t have access to treatment. “If one mom gets to sleep good tonight because their son’s in treatment, it’s all worth it,” Matt Bell, the CEO of Amatus’ Midwest Recovery Center, said.
