Breaking Heroin’s Grip: Road to Recovery

February 11, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Maryland Public Television (MPT) and over two dozen other local TV and radio stations to air a new program called BREAKING HEROIN’S GRIP: ROAD TO RECOVERY on February 11 at 7 p.m.

Breaking Heroin’s Grip: Road to Recovery is a poignant and personal documentary shedding light on our region’s pressing heroin problem. Told through the lens of adults that have experienced heroin’s grip first-hand, viewers will get an authentic look inside the complexities of this harrowing epidemic.

The program includes a 40-minute documentary followed by a 20-minute live phone bank (1-800-422-0009) offering viewers expert information about treatment. The documentary is produced by Maryland Public Television in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The program will be simulcast by numerous broadcasters (both TV and radio) in Maryland, as well as surrounding states.

The program was arranged with broadcast and print media as part of an effort to bring localized coverage of the opioid epidemic. Maryland is among many states with surging numbers of fatal overdoses largely from opioids, which include prescription painkillers and heroin.

The program will also be live-streamed at:    http://www.mpt.org/breakingheroin
