A district prison in a remote corner of Appalachia gives an idea of ​​how a wave of opioids and methamphetamines destroys American families. Here, and in many other places, drug addiction leads to a rapid increase in the number of female prisoners. More than ten years ago, in Campbell County Prison in northeastern Tennessee, there were rarely more than 10 women. Now the number of prisoners is about 60 people.

Most of those who came here went the same way: they were arrested on drug charges and kept in a cell for 23 hours a day. Many of their acquaintances are also addicts. They do not get any advice. Then weeks, months or years later, they are released on the same environment where friends, and in some cases families, use drugs. Soon they are back in jail.
And the cycle begins anew: another arrest, another photo, another pink uniform and into the camera.
