A new documentary premiering tonight on PBS takes a deep look at how opioid addiction affects the brain.

Created by the team at Boston-based NOVA, “Addiction,” weaves the stories of impacted families alongside the work being done by scientists to understand and treat the nationwide epidemic, which killed more than 63,00 people in 2016.

Sarah Holt, the film’s writer, director, and producer, told Boston.com she hopes the documentary will help to shed light on the stigma associated with addiction as well as help those seeking ways to assist loved ones struggling with dependance on drugs.

“Addiction” premieres tonight on most PBS stations.
