This is the first in a series about prescription opioid drug addiction in Wyoming.
Cheyenne resident Pennie Hunt knew her youngest son JT wasn’t like other kids. As lovable and creative as he was, she said, “He grew up kind of as the daredevil and I always worried about him.”
JT struggled with anxiety. By the time he was 14, he was addicted to his prescription medication. At 15, he went to his first stint in an out-of-state rehab center.
