Across the country, cities are using whatever resources they have to fight the opioid overdose epidemic. Here in Appalachia, small towns are coming up short when it comes to getting a handle on the problem. For the past year, states, cities, counties, and towns across the country have filed lawsuits against big pharmaceutical companies. People in these small towns are hoping a victory in these suits can provide the money to help fund things like recovery centers and more police. The first town to file suit was Kermit, in Mingo County, West Virginia.
