America Reframed

Oxyana

Season 5 Episode 9 | 54m 50s

Set among the hills and hollers of Appalachia, Oceana, WV looks like a rural paradise. But this community is under siege: a raging epidemic of prescription drug abuse is so deadly that residents have nicknamed the town “OXYANA.” A close-up look at people who live from one pill to the next, and a harrowing vision of today’s AnyTown, USA.
