Jacci Espinoza is an accounts manager at New Beginnings, a wife, mother, daughter, and an engaged member of our community. She’s also an addict in active recovery. In this episode, Jacci shares her journey through addiction and recovery, and the importance of harm reduction policies that can prevent overdose deaths. I’m thankful to Jacci for being willing to share her story with such openness and honesty, and I think listeners will have the chance to learn a lot from our conversation.
