A new documentary on heroin and opioid addiction from Maryland Public Television will air on dozens of commercial TV and radio stations across the Mid-Atlantic region next month. Many will carry it as a live simulcast.

Breaking Heroin’s Grip: Road to Recovery, 7 to 8 p.m. Eastern time Feb. 11, also offers viewers and listeners access to a live phone bank staffed by state Behavioral Health Administration crisis hotline workers.

The program will run regionally through an agreement with commercial stations in the Maryland D.C. Delaware Broadcasters Association. Members of the Maryland–Delaware–DC Press Association, a newspaper coalition representing more than 100 publications and wire services, also will cover the topic.
