In The Moment ... October 17. 2018 Show 443 Hour 2

NOVA takes an unflinching look at the science and social impact of addiction. How do drugs of abuse alter the brain? Why is addiction so hard to control? As we learn more about how addiction works, what are we learning about how it can be beaten?

Sarah Holt is writer, director, and producer of NOVA's "Addiction." It premiers tonight on SDPB-TV at 8 p.m. Central, 7 p.m. Mountain.  It's also simulcasting on NOVA's Facebook page where viewers can join the conversation online and there's a lot of interactive content tied to this NOVA film at PBS.org/NOVA.
