Art exhibit chronicles harrowing journey

Jenna Walchuk picked up a paintbrush for the first time less than a year ago, but her artwork is still the culmination of a long journey.

Walchuk spent several years addicted to drugs, and painting has been part of her treatment and recovery.

Her first exhibit is called Drug Therapy, and in it Jenna uses pictures she took while still dealing with her addiction.

She's remarkably open and honest when she talks about her downward spiral, and her eventual recovery.
