SIDE EFFECTS PUBLIC MEDIA
First responders like firefighter Brandon Dreiman face barriers when it comes to getting treatment for mental health and addiction. He coped with traumatic experiences through drinking. Then, a random work drug screening changed his life.
Dreiman shared his story during a live storytelling event hosted by the Indiana Addictions Issues Coalition in partnership with Side Effects Public Media at WFYI on Aug. 14, 2018.
This story was produced by Matt Pelsor. On Monday, Dec. 17, at 9 p.m. tune into 90.1 WFYI for an hour-long special on these stories.
