Topic: Drug Prevention

Graham Media Group’s NBC affiliate WDIV-TV Detroit is committed to addressing the opioid abuse crisis. “All of us at WDIV are keenly aware of the impact we can have when tackling important local problems, and the opioid addiction epidemic is of great concern to us,” said Director of Local Programming Laurie Oberman. This year, WDIV has aired town halls, documentaries and more than 325 PSAs provided by the Partnership for Drug Free Kids. WDIV featured a local family’s struggle with opioid addiction and provided information on developments in methods to treat addiction in young adults. In addition, the station has covered announcements from President Obama, the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, the Center for Disease Control, the city of Canton, the Michigan Governor and city of Clawson.
