3. Faces of the Epidemic – Hear from a person in long term recovery into and out of active addiction. 
4. What defines a substance abuse disorder? What triggers addiction? How does a person recover from his or her disease?  
5. Responding to the Epidemic – How has the federal and state government responded and how are community agencies responding? What role do community coalitions play?
