For Some Families, “Dopesick” Is More Than a Show
There’s a dad in Pennsylvania who’s watched every episode three times. His name is Ed Bisch, and if you’ve read Dopesick, (the heartbreaking non-fiction book on which the new Hulu show is based) you will remember his story.
Ed Bisch’s teenage son, Eddie, Jr., died of an OxyContin overdose in 2001. The day Eddie, Jr., died was the day his dad first heard about OxyContin.
