  • Between a 'Hub' and a Hard Place: Three Stories of Opioid Addiction in Rural Vermont

    In rural Vermont, people with opioid-use disorder face unique obstacles to recovery, including lack of services, geographical barriers and small-town stigmatization. Addiction both flourishes in isolation and creates it. In the third installment of "Hooked," her yearlong series exploring Vermont’s opioid epidemic, staff writer Kate O'Neill shares stories of addiction and recovery from three isolated communities: In Enosburg, she found Sierra LaCoste, for whom buying drugs on the streets was easier than getting to a clinic for daily treatment; from their home in Goshen, Dave and Jan Bishop of Goshen spend their days driving Addison County addicts to Burlington and Rutland; And in Windham County, the residents of Wilmington are trying to make their town a place where people who are struggling with addiction can find help — and love.
