Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America
Crisis. I’ve paid intermittent attention to the opioid crisis in America, having read articles every now and then about increasing rates of addiction, about the Sackler family and Purdue Pharma, and the struggles of some rural communities to respond to the crisis. Now that I’ve read Beth Macy’s book titled, Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America, I better understand the scope of the crisis which is larger and more sinister than I had imagined. Greed and negligence have combined to kill and cripple too many people for too long.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
