A new film follows the journey of three women in the Rochester area. They’re all mothers and they’ve all served time behind bars for opioid and heroin-related crimes. Opioids from Inside is a partnership between WXXI, Blue Sky Project and PBS World. It examines the challenging path to sobriety while also showing the painful effects of addiction on families and communities. On this edition of Need to Know, we learn more about the ripple effect of this crisis through the perspectives of those featured in the film.
