Even before the scourge of opioid addiction decimated Appalachia, eastern Kentucky was a dreary place. The coalmines had closed, and the jobs had left. Then came a wave of addiction to prescription pills, heroin and methamphetamine, and the picture became even bleaker. In this quick overview of the pathology of eastern Kentucky, researchers J. Stephen Morrison and Lillian Dattilo find a few reasons for optimism but even more causes for concern. getAbstract recommends this grim report to those seeking insights into a devastating social problem.
