AmericaWorldA one-hour special on America’s Opioid Epidemic has recently become available for download from the TelVue Connect Media Exchange.

The program is produced by Media Exchange Syndicator “This is America & the World”, which broadcasts also on PBS. Producer Jake Cregger says: “We feel this program is very helpful to many people struggling with addiction or struggling to understand addiction. Thus we are eager to make it available to as many people as possible, and PEG stations are an excellent tool to help with outreach of this sort of content.”

Program description: “Opioid and heroin addiction and overdose deaths are rising at an alarming rate. On this special program, Michael Botticelli, Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy speaks with host Dennis Wholey about prescription drug and heroin addiction and warning signs for family members. The brief Botticelli interview is followed by a roundtable discussion with four medical experts about the past year’s 23,000 opioid deaths as well as addiction and treatment.

The program can be previewed and licensed from the Media Exchange.
