This week, NBC News national correspondent Kate Snow will present a series of reports on heroin addiction. The series, “Hooked: America’s Heroin Epidemic,” took Snow to several different cities as she interviewed current and former addicts.
“So many people have bravely shared with me their intimate struggles with heroin addiction. They did that knowing it would help others,” Snow tells TVNewser. “What we’ve learned is how pervasive these stories are — doctors, lawyers, teachers, professionals — heroin addiction crosses all demographics.”
Snow’s reports will air throughout the week across all NBC News platforms, including NBCNews.com, where Snow will host a series of webcasts to discuss her reporting.
