A new CDC study found more than 75 percent of counties don’t have anywhere residents can get methadone, and 30 percent of counties lack a buprenorphine provider. In North Carolina, rural communities with many Black and Indigenous residents often lack access to care.

My name is Sara Baart and I most certainly am a recovering addict. I will give you a quick synopsis of what it was like then and now. I’ve been a sneaky person since I became a person. I was always lying and hiding things as a child. Addictively eating candy and other sweets. I had my first alcoholic drink when I was a toddler.
I found myself in a homeless shelter wanting to find a better way to live. Today I live a better life. No more thoughts of suicide. A joy I did not think I would ever find. People friends and family who care about me today. If recovery is possible for me it is definitely possible for you!!!
At 13 years old I began drinking, and I had found the only thing that made my mind stop and made me feel like that was not a care in the world. I’ve always been a worrier, full of anxiety, but alcohol and Marijuana became my cure. That cure lasted for a while, until it didn’t and l needed something more. By the age of 23, I had nothing and was on the edge of losing my kids and my mind! At this point I knew I had to do something different.
