60 Minutes Looks at Heroin Epidemic in Ohio

On Sunday, the CBS news program 60 Minutes ran a story highlighting the nation's heroin epidemic. Reporter Bill Whitaker spent time in Ohio interviewing families whose lives have been forever changed as a result of opiate addiction. Last week, Governor Kasich announced an investment of $1.5 million a year to improve the state system that tracks and prevents prescription drug abuse. This is just one of the multiple statewide initiatives launched over the past four years to fight addiction and promote recovery.
