From Nurse to Addict: Kris Waite's Journey to Redemption

Just because you know what addiction is and what causes it and how it works, and all that doesn't mean you are immune to it, you know, right, that denial is so strong.
Kris Waite was a registered nurse who became addicted to Fentanyl while working as a surgical nurse in a hospital. Her story goes into the depths of addiction, incarceration, and out the other side to redemption and a reattainment of her goals. In a replay of an interview on the Addiction Podcast - Point of No Return, Kris shares her journey from being a nurse to an addict and how she overcame her addiction to Fentanyl.
Her story is an inspiring one that shows that anyone can be susceptible to addiction, no matter their profession or background. Kris's experience sheds light on the dangers of Fentanyl abuse, the impact of addiction on healthcare professionals, the legal consequences of addiction, and the possibility of redemption and recovery from addiction.
