Dopesick is an eight-episode limited series based on the New York Times bestselling book of the same name by Beth Macy.

Dopesick, an ambitious, harrowing, and compelling look into the epicenter of America's struggle with Opioid addiction, takes viewers from a distressed Virginia mining community, to the hallways of the DEA, and to the opulence of "one percenter" Big Pharma Manhattan. The unsparing yet deeply human portraits of the various affected families and their intersecting stories hold up a mirror to where America is right now, while shining a hopeful light on the heroes battling the worst drug epidemic in American history.
