The documentary 'Down on the Pharm' is available to watch for free and it's all about what's happening our Quad Cities communities.

Pharmaceutical drug use and addiction has been on the rise across the nation. These are not new statistics for us to know and understand. What is most alarming, is how the increase in drug use in the Quad Cities, in the past 2 years alone, has reached new highs.

Mike Mickle, a long-time journalist, news anchor, now News Director at WHBF- Channel 4, QC Family Focus Magazine and Mickle Communications, along with his production team (shout out to Harry Walker) have all worked tirelessly on multiple documentaries, including 'Down on the Pharm.'

The movie debuted on Channel 4 in an extra, 30 minute special last night. If you missed it, you can watch it here.

As always, if you or someone you know is facing drug addiction and abuse, there are plenty of resources in the Quad Cities willing to help. The first step you take just might save a life.
