Tom Musgrave chats with Doris Thurber, a cofounder of Franklin County's Hands Healing HeArts initiative, and Angie Boone, one of the Hands Healing HeArts participants, about this unique addiction recovery support program centered around the visual arts. Hands Healing HeArts works in cooperation with Franklin County Drug Court, using a variety of hands-on, multi-disciplinary artistic approaches with women in Drug Court to support their recovery.

During the course of this conversation, we talk about a couple of videos Hands Healing Hearts has produced, and the organization has generously allowed us to post links to them:
