Recovery advocates fear addiction and overdose deaths are worsening due to the pandemic. Local substance abuse treatment facilities are busier than ever. 

Matt Bell, CEO of Midwest Recovery, said their wait list has never been longer. 

"We want to help people, but we have to refer them to another agency right now, because we don't have enough beds," he said.
