Broken: Women – Families – Opioids – Airs: Thursday, March 29 at 10pm on WHYY
Opioid addiction is destructive across all demographics. But compared to men, women’s addiction can have more devastating implications. Some children are born addicted, while others face uncertain futures because of addicted mothers. Many children are placed in foster care, but an increasing number are being raised by extended family – further disrupting lives. WQED continues its Emmy© Award winning “Hope after Heroin” project with a compelling new documentary exploring how opioid addiction among women is breaking the family bond and changing the fabric of society.

Hooked Rx: From Prescription to Addiction is a special investigative project into the destructive epidemic of prescription opioid addiction, produced by more than 100 journalism students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. For nearly four months, students crisscrossed the state to produce a multimedia investigation into Arizona’s – and the country’s – dependence on prescription pain medication and the toll addiction takes on families and patients.
