Portrait Of A Tennessee Community In Recovery:
In 2016, more Tennesseans died from a drug overdose than ever before in recorded state history. Many of the deaths were linked to opioids. The epidemic, “has led to the largest percentage of our criminal conduct. It's filled up our jails. Put a price tag on that – I don't know how you do it," says District Attorney General Russell Johnson. In our latest TruckBeat story we return to Roane County, East Tennessee, where recovery court graduation celebrations are overshadowed by the escalating addiction crisis, and a looming battle against Big Pharma over opioids.
