Description
"America is in the midst of the deadliest drug epidemic in US history. In 2017 alone, around 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses, driven by a dramatic rise in the abuse of opioids like OxyContin, heroin, and fentanyl. It's a slow-motion disaster that is destroying whole communities, with no end in sight. As our nation looks for answers, take an unflinching look at the epidemic through the eyes of those living through it. Along the way, join doctors, psychologists, and neuroscientists as they investigate how drugs of abuse alter the brain, and why it is so hard to control. They are narrowing in on how we should address our drug problem, from the development of evidence-based treatments and new medications, to the rethinking of public policies. With vivid case studies and insights into the latest scientific breakthroughs, unravel the complex and tragic puzzle of how addiction works, and how it can be beaten"--Container.
