Broken: Women - Families - Opioids
Opioid addiction is destructive across all demographics. But compared to men, women’s addiction can have more devastating implications. Some children are born addicted, while others face uncertain futures because of addicted mothers. Many children are placed in foster care, but an increasing number are being raised by extended family – further disrupting lives. WQED continues its Emmy© Award winning “Hope after Heroin” project with a compelling new documentary exploring how opioid addiction among women is breaking the family bond and changing the fabric of society.
