A must-see documentary on North Carolina’s heroin epidemic

This evening WRAL-TV airs the documentary Searching for a Fix that explores the path from prescription opioids in North Carolina to the much cheaper and more readily available heroin.

Documentary producer Clay Johnson sat down with NC Policy Watch’s Chris Fitzsimon over the weekend to give us a preview of the hour-long special. Click below to hear our interview.

If you miss tonight’s (August 1st) 7:00pm broadcast, you can watch on-demand at WRALdocumentary.com. You can also catch Searching for a Fix on WRAL’s Roku, Amazon Fire TV and AppleTV apps.
