Dopesick follows the long chain of preventable, profit-driven human misery that is the opioid crisis.” New York Magazine

Award-winning investigative reporter Beth Macy delves into America’s 20-plus year struggle with opioid addiction in Dopesick, her bestselling book on the deadly epidemic. Through her harrowing and compassionate portraits of the people behind the raging opioid crisis – from its victims to its profiteers – Macy illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched, and where we go from here.
