An illicit, deadly drug -- A nationwide problem -- The stranglehold of addiction -- Heroin's destructive health effects -- The challenges of treatment and recovery -- Stopping heroin addiction before it starts.
"Heroin has always been a dangerous drug, but in recent years it has become deadlier than ever. That is because illicit drug producers are cutting it with a powerful synthetic opioid known as fentanyl. As the opioid crisis rages on in the United States, health officials and addiction experts are distressed as well as perplexed about how to stop it-and there are no simple answers." --
