Hooked Rx

Prescription opioid abuse is a prevalent issue in the United States and in Arizona. With the U.S. Surgeon General and the Arizona Governor’s office making efforts to address this epidemic, it’s definitely relevant and timely.

Taking prescription opioids often starts off innocently, possibly for an injury. Then this scourge can lead to an addiction that wreaks havoc on someone's life.

Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Arizona Broadcasters Association (ABA) recognized this issue and this opportune time to investigate this epidemic. Through the use of research and storytelling, the documentary hopes to reach out to Arizonans and inform them on this epidemic.

“Hooked Rx: From Prescription to Addiction” will reveal different aspects of the issue in Arizona’s own backyard. Numerous students in the Cronkite School’s professional programs worked to create, broadcast and promote this revealing and informational documentary. On Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, television and radio stations will broadcast this investigative report without any commercial interruptions.
