Connect: NY Dope, but no hope

  • Aired: 03/27/2017

  • Rating: NR
Connect: Real Stories of Poverty in New York continues -- with a look at the link between drug abuse, hopelessness, and poverty. Opioid addiction is not only a problem for the poor but, people without economic resources suffer in ways that people with financial resources may not. We travel to Binghamton to meet a former drug addict who's climbing her way out of poverty and off the streets.
