This up close and personal look at Mainers hooked on heroin in Washington County will give you a whole new perspective on the ongoing opioid crisis.

Produced and shared by Tonic, this mini documentary highlights the lives and daily struggles of fishermen in downeast Maine, and puts a human face on a very real problem. In 2016, Maine averaged one overdose death per day.

Maybe with more documentaries like this, public awareness of just how big this problem is can get to a point where we can really do something substantial to fix it.
