Episode Two / Opioid

This is a story in two parts. The first, is of a national epidemic; a story of 19 million prescriptions, 2,500 deaths, and a country that ranks second for per capita opioid use. The second, is of a person whose circumstances throw into sharp relief just how hard that epidemic will be to solve.

This is the story of Canada's Opioid crisis through the eyes of a patient.
