hEROIN

 

America’s heroin and opioid crisis has been called the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history, with deaths from heroin and prescription opioid overdoses nearly quadrupling in 15 years. Now, a two-hour FRONTLINE documentary, CHASING HEROIN, goes inside the crisis and places it in a fresh and provocative light — telling individual stories of addiction, but also investigating how the heroin epidemic as we know it came to be, and exploring radical new approaches to fighting it that are sweeping the nation.
