“At Viceland, we make shows that immerse our audience into environments and experiences. This show takes the current drug crisis beyond headlines and statistics and makes it human.”
American Junkie follows two recovering addicts, Allie and Frank, who devote their lives to helping fellow addicts in their life-and-death struggle for recovery, rescuing them from the streets and helping them avoid the countless corrupt rehab facilities and sober houses where greed trumps treatment and Millennial addicts have become cash commodities.
