Hearst’s ABC affiliate WCVB-TV Boston aired “5 Investigates Goes Back to Methadone Mile” September 23. After WCVB aired troubling reports in May, Mayor Marty Walsh promised to help people in an area known as “Methadone Mile,” where the drug addiction crisis is clearly evident. WCVB returned to the area to see the impact of the city’s efforts. They found a man on a sidewalk smoking what appeared to be crack, a woman passed out next to a pharmacy and paramedics helping a man who overdosed.
