Dopesick ✂ Dopesick free download pdf ̼ Kindle Ebook Author Beth Macy ᾩ The only book to fully chart the devastating opioid crisis in America An unforgettable portrait of the families and first responders on the front lines, from a New York Times best selling author and journalist who has lived through it. In this masterful work, Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of America s 20 plus year struggle with opioid addiction From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs from disparate cities to once idyllic farm towns it s a heartbreaking trajectory that illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched Beginning with a single dealer who lands in a small Virginia town and sets about turning high school football stars into heroin overdose statistics, Macy endeavors to answer a grieving mother s question why her only son died and comes away with a harrowing story of greed and need From the introduction of OxyContin in 1996, Macy parses how America embraced a medical culture where overtreatment with painkillers became the norm In some of the same distressed communities featured in her best selling book Factory Man, the unemployed use painkillers both to numb the pain of joblessness and pay their bills, while privileged teens trade pills in cul de sacs, and even high school standouts fall prey to prostitution, jail, and death Through unsparing, yet deeply human portraits of the families and first responders struggling to ameliorate this epidemic, each facet of the crisis comes into focus In these politically fragmented times, Beth Macy shows, astonishingly, that the only thing that unites Americans across geographic and class lines is opioid drug abuse But in a country unable to provide basic healthcare for all, Macy still finds reason to hope and signs of the spirit and tenacity necessary in those facing addiction to build a better future for themselves and their families.
