Bennett Larson's apartment is seen Nov. 4, 2022. Larson welcomed us in after smoking a cigarette outside on the front porch. Across the road, a high school football game roared. Walking in, shoes are stacked neatly in the entryway, posters lined the far wall and model figurines covered almost every flat surface. Larson is recovering from an addiction to marijuana that he said left him in a terrible place. Now, he is a part of Narcotics Anonymous and the Collegiate Recovery Community at IU, but on a campus where substance use is incredibly common, Larson still feels isolated from his peers.
