Breaking Heroin’s Grip: Road to Recovery


The continuing opioid crisis in communities served by Maryland Public Television’s broadcast signal prompted the station to develop an awareness and education initiative for early 2017. Giving the multi-month project the title of “Addiction & Recovery,” MPT sought to honestly portray the dark side of addiction while also providing hope, encouragement and access to professional help for those impacted by opioid abuse. The effort culminated in the broadcast of a 2017 production called Breaking Heroin’s Grip: Road to Recovery.
