Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America by Beth Macy

Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of America's twenty-plus year struggle with opioid addiction. From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs and from cities to farm towns, it's a heartbreaking trajectory that illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched. In these politically fragmented times, Macy shows that the only thing that unites Americans across geographic and class lines is opioid drug abuse.
