Description

Federal data released last week showed more than 101,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in a one-year period. This was partly due to the pandemic and disruptions to treatment, as well as a surge in methamphetamine and fentanyl use.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
