Summary Facing a heroin epidemic, America is experimenting with radical new approaches to a national drug problem. This searing investigation places America's heroin crisis in a fresh light. The stories of four individual addicts in Seattle provide an illuminating insight into the epidemic's social context, which has for years been in the making. Chasing Heroin deeply examines shifts in US drug policy, and explores what happens when addiction is treated like a public health crisis instead of a crime.
