Back to the Triangle (Part 2): The Addiction is Everything

In this episode, we profile the families of heroin users inside The Triangle to understand how the drug impacts everyone.

Editor's note: This is the second part of our "Back to the Triangle" series. 

For more than a year, our investigators have been independently tracking the number of heroin deaths in the Triangle. This data revealed a pattern contradicting the long held belief that heroin addiction was a problem isolated in poor, urban communities.

A new CDC study confirms our findings: the population most at risk are young, white males living near major cities.

The stories profiled in The Triangle illustrates the complexity of the heroin epidemic, and the heartbreaking similarities between addicts.  

When someone is dependent on heroin, the drug affects more than the user.  In this episode, we profile the families of heroin users inside The Triangle to understand how the drug impacts everyone. (Watch Episode Two)
