SESAME STREET: New Character's Mom Addicted to Opioids

 

The children's show has posted a series of videos featuring Karli talking to her friends about her mother's addiction to opioids.

Karli came to Sesame Street in May to stay with a foster family because her mom was "having a hard time."

In the videos, she says her mother had to go away for treatment and that she goes to a special meeting for children with the same problem.

In a statement, Sesame Workshop said that 5.7 million children under age 11 in the U.S. live in households with a parent with a substance abuse disorder.
