APTOPIX The Other Epidemic West Virginia

APTOPIX The Other Epidemic West Virginia

Sue Howland, right, a member of the Quick Response Team which visits everyone who overdoses to offer help, checks in on Betty Thompson, 65, who struggles with alcohol addiction, at her apartment in Huntington, W.Va., Wednesday, March 17, 2021. "In a way I feel empty, there's nobody here to talk to," Thompson said. "I drink to escape. I try to get away from feeling." Howland crouched next to her. "We just need to get you back on the right path," she said. They told her they'd be back the next day, and that they love her. "Who could love me?" (AP Photo/David Goldman)
