    The number of heroin users has more than doubled in just a decade. The death rate from overdose has nearly quadrupled. And with cut-rate prices and an increase in both availability and variety, heroin’s popularity looks only to increase.

    What to expect: Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin on addressing his state’s heroin crisis; Kathie Kane-Willis on helping others overcome their heroin addiction; Police Chief Leonard Campanello on offering addicts treatment, not jail; Dr. Carl Hart on the neurology of addiction
