Once a bustling industrial town, Huntington, West Virginia has become the epicenter of America's modern opioid epidemic, with an overdose rate 10 times the national average. This flood of heroin now threatens this Appalachian city with a cycle of generational addiction, lawlessness, and poverty. But within this distressed landscape, Peabody Award winning filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon shows a different side of the fight against drugs; one of hope. —Netflix
The Opiate Epidemic is a lot worse than shown here
10/18/17. A somewhat whitewashed version of the current opiate epidemic that some may find inspirational. While it gives viewers an inside look at what first responders must deal with when it comes to overdoses, it paints a somewhat skewed picture of those addicted. Those individuals highlighted as drug users seem a lot more cooperative than they really are. If they were this cooperative there wouldn't be such a big problem. Maybe it'll raise awareness. The one to watch is FBI's "Chasing the Dragon" on Youtube.
