Overview

Easy Does It, Inc., (EDI), located in the serene countryside of Leesport, Pennsylvania, provides transitional housing for people recovering from the disease of addiction. On a holiday weekend in September, seven college students selected for the Writing Wrongs program visited EDI. They interviewed residents willing to share their stories, resulting in the true narratives contained in this print and digital edition. The students volunteered their time and skills in the hope that their work will deliver strength to others in recovery, as well as a new understanding of the disease to society in general.


Writing Wrongs is a project borne of the desire to illuminate the ills in our society through the power of the pen and the lens. By telling the stories of those directly involved, Writing Wrongs offers a different and often-ignored perspective that challenges stereotypes and prejudices. Writing Wrongs has full nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project of Humanitarian Social Innovations. All proceeds will be used to support the mission of Writing Wrongs.
