Our timely opening series will center on addiction. In 2017, the US suffered an estimated 72,0000 fatal drug overdoses, and that figure is expected to keep rising.
The “remedy”? This country has the largest and most lucrative addiction treatment system in the world…with dismal success rates. Something is broken, and people with addiction and their loved ones deserve the truth.
Our series will consist of deep-dive reporting, first-person narratives and analysis, and succinct, reader-oriented service pieces. It will deliver critiques and exposés of the rehab industry, roadmaps for those trying to navigate their way to health, and vital warnings about what not to do.
First up? An extensively reported piece examining a simple, controversial message that you’ll rarely find online: “Don’t Send Your Kids to Rehab.”
