Is Dopesick Available on Netflix?
Unfortunately, Dopesick is not currently available on Netflix. While Netflix has many similar titles regarding the opioid problem and addiction struggles, as of today, this 2021 miniseries is not among them, and it’s possible that it never will be because the show is currently only available on a separate streaming channel.
Even so, we’ll keep you updated if and when this changes. Until then, keep reading to find out where you can watch every episode of Dopesick.
Where To Watch Dopesick?
Dopesick is a Hulu series (in the United States, it premieres on Disney Plus in the United Kingdom), therefore you’ll need a subscription to the streaming service to see it.
There are a few options for obtaining a Hulu subscription. The first option is to just subscribe to the solo Hulu subscription. This comes in two flavors: a $6.99 ad-supported Hulu membership and a $12.99 ad-free subscription. Additional add-ons (such as premium channels like HBO or Showtime, unlimited screens, and DVR capacity) are available with either of these subscriptions, but you won’t need any of them to watch Dopesick.
