On-Demand FRONTLINE: Chasing Heroin

On-Demand FRONTLINE: Chasing Heroin

A searing, two-hour investigation places America’s heroin crisis in a fresh and provocative light.

FRONTLINE looks at America's heroin crisis – telling the stories of individual addicts, but also illuminating the epidemic's years-in-the-making social context, deeply examining shifts in drug policy, and exploring what happens when addiction is treated like a public health issue, not a crime. Facing a heroin epidemic, America is experimenting with radical new approaches to the drug problem. Following four addicts in Seattle, the film examines U.S. drug policy and what happens when heroin is treated like a public health crisis, not a crime.
