A total of 326 people died of drug overdoses in New Hampshire last year, almost one person per day. This year, the state expects to blow past that number. Meanwhile New Hampshire ranks near the bottom in access to treatment, and the drugs continue to flow into the Granite State thanks to dealers and cartels in other parts of the world.
In Killer High: Crisis in the Granite State, NH1 News explored the tragedy that's hit communities all across the state, talking to doctors, police departments, families who lost loved ones and people who successfully overcame their addiction.
Representatives from Farnum Center, Laconia Police Department's drug treatment coordinator, Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard, Dr. Goodman from Catholic Medical Center, and Gov. Maggie Hassan are among those who took questions and tried to shed light on the drug crisis in New Hampshire during the one-hour special on NH1 News.
