Overview

The opiate crisis in the United States is one of the most serious public health concerns the nation has ever had to deal with. Despite the constant concern and media coverage of the crisis, it doesn't seem to be improving over time, however.

Even after being described as an epidemic by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 2015, the overdose death from heroin and prescription drugs haven't lowered. Why is this crisis so hard to tackle and is it being dealt with in the right way?

In Sam Quinones' Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic, you'll find the answers to these questions and finally understand the dark history of the spread of drug addiction in one of the world's most developed nations.

Favorite Quote

"OxyContin is a simple pill. It contains only one drug: oxycodone, a painkiller that Germans synthesized in 1916 from thebaine, an opium derivative. Molecularly, oxycodone is similar to heroin."
