How This Kansas City Artist Conquered His Addiction
After a long battle, Kansas City artist Wes Benson conquered his addiction to opioids. He tells his story hoping it will help others do the same.
Today, he runs a secular AA group called “Freethinkers,” aimed at helping people empower themselves to recover from addiction. He also sponsors several addicts and cautions them not to backslide during a pandemic, when it’s especially easy to do so.
