“The first time I used, it was the most euphoric rush I had ever felt in my life.  And I knew then that I was not going to stop,” says Kenny Shadday, a McDonald’s manager in eastern Kentucky.

Shadday did, in fact, stop—he’s now recovered from his opioid addiction, thanks to an innovative new program that brings intensive outpatient treatment to rural areas.

In a new documentary from The Atlantic, Nikki King, the founder of Ripley County Courts Addiction & Drug Services, gives us a glimpse behind the scenes of her one-of-a-kind treatment program.
