The Opioid Crisis

May 8, 2020


Before COVID-19, a public health crisis was already taking the lives of thousands of Kentuckians. In 2017, the rate of fatal opioid overdoses in Kentucky was almost twice the national average. This week we speak to Dr. Kimberly Luse about the effects addiction can have on families and communities. And former NBA player and UK alum Rex Chapman details his road to recovery. Plus, Rex tells us about going toe-to-toe with Michael Jordan and other stories you won’t hear on ESPN’s documentary.
